Principals Overlooked Purpose of Releaguing

June 26, 1993

Looking at the latest league restructuring, it amazes me what our Orange County principals are thinking. Supposedly, the basic intent of realignment was to create leagues where schools of similar size and athletic strength could compete, without creating hardships due to travel on the schools. Two proposals passed earlier this year were later rejected during the appeal process when a handful of schools changing leagues complained that the above criteria were not being met.

Well, now it appears that the principals would accept just about anything to get his process complete. Looking at the latest proposal, it doesn't take a genius to see that Esperanza doesn't belong in the Sunset due to travel problems and Servite is too powerful for the new league. The same points probably can be said of Mater Dei remaining in the South Coast League.

You would think each plan iteration would include the good features from the prior proposal, not re-creation of the wheel. This proposal is definitely a major step back. I wonder--do our school principals really do their homework in preparation of these meetings?
