Appeals by Alemany, St. Paul Rejected

November 05, 1998

The executive committee of the Southern Section tentatively turned down the appeals of Alemany and St. Paul, which do not want to be placed in the Del Rey League next season.

As part of the Catholic Athletic Assn.'s make over, Alemany and St. Paul will be in the league with Loyola and Bishop Amat.

The committee, however, agreed to a request from Jerome Porath, superintendent of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, for more time to review the CAA's new leagues.

Porath and the CAA executive committee will have until Dec. 1 to submit an alternative releaguing proposal.

If an alternative is presented, CAA schools will have until Jan. 5 to respond in writing. The executive committee would then review the material at its Jan. 8 meeting before sending a proposal to the section council for a vote.


Fight night: Undefeated junior-featherweight Carlos Navarro of Los Angeles will headline a boxing card at the Reseda Country Club on Saturday night.

Committed: Chris Testa, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound center fielder from Palmdale High, made a commitment Wednesday to attend Cal State Northridge. Testa batted .457 as a junior.

"I like the coaches a lot and I like the atmosphere," he said. "They are just there to win."


Taking leave: Coach Paula Getty-Shearer has decided to take a leave of absence from Louisville's girls' team to help husband and assistant coach Dennis Shearer recover from a bone marrow transplant performed in April.

"I really should dedicate myself to him and making him better," said Getty-Shearer who was 63-34 in four seasons at the school. "That's my No. 1 priority."

Louisville is accepting applications for interim coach. Contact Athletic Director Marilyn Hyman: (818) 346-2149.


Big Sky honors: Senior defender Jenny Wanner of Cal State Northridge was selected to the 1998 All-Big Sky Conference women's team. Pam Karbowski, a senior who played midfield and defense, earned honorable mention.


Taking over: Lancaster High has hired Kara Johnson. She replaces Orbin Love, who was 19-25 during the Eagles' first two seasons of varsity competition.


Seeds planted: The City Section girls' playoff seedings will be determined tonight.

Palisades is expected to be top seeded in the new format, which no longer divides teams into the 4-A and 3-A divisions. Instead, the top 16 teams will be in the "City" bracket and the next 16 teams will be in the "Division" bracket.

Poly, Sylmar, Chatsworth, Granada Hills and Taft are expected to be in the City bracket.
