Liberty League Seeks Change in Dividing of Playoff Profits

March 30, 1994

Liberty League officials have submitted a proposal to the Southern Section that would change the way playoff profits are divided among schools.

Under the current system, the section receives 50% of profits from each playoff game, and the participating schools split the other 50%. Under the Liberty League plan, all profits from playoff competition would be returned to the Southern Section and used primarily to reduce membership fees and expand coaching education programs.

The proposal will be debated at the next general council meeting on April 29.

"I always felt a little uncomfortable that whether a team wins or loses determines how much money the school will be getting," said Eric Walter, athletic director at Oakwood School and president of the Liberty League. "If we're supposed to have a notion of cooperation rather than competition, then more schools would benefit. If nothing else this will get people thinking and change the status quo."


The Van Nuys High baseball team has been forced to forfeit Saturday's 3-2 victory over University in an L.A. Invitational tournament game after the disclosure that Jesus Bolivar of Van Nuys exceeded the state weekly limit for innings pitched.

Bolivar pitched 13 innings, three over the maximum, including a complete game against University and six innings against Poly five days earlier.

Van Nuys' record is now 4-7.


Sophomore quarterback Keijun Douglas, who led Poly to a Mid-Valley League title last season, has transferred to San Fernando.

San Fernando Coach Sean Blunt said Douglas is one of five candidates for the quarterback position. Douglas passed for 629 yards and ran for 515 last season.


Northridge senior Amy Windmiller, who pitched a perfect game and a no-hitter in the Cal State Fullerton tournament, has been selected player of the week by the Western Athletic Conference.
