They either wanted the conference or they didn’t. Schools like Dana Hills, Capistrano Valley and Aliso Niguel were vocal about not wanting the South Coast to remain the same. San Clemente wanted it untouched.
The Sea View League schools didn’t want a conference for the most part, citing concerns such as logistics, scheduling and surpervision, plus they weren’t sure it would help competitive equity one way or another.
In the end, Foothill and Huntington Beach leave the Sea View League. Oilers move to Sunset League; Knights in Empire League.
Laguna Hills was clear they didn’t want to join a conference, and are worried about competitive equity in regards to leaving the Pacific Coast League.
There is a much to be worked out still within the conference, such as will the teams split into two, 6-teams league and keep the South Coast and Sea View Leaugs alive still, and will they divide it by sport-by-sport, season-by-season, or simply school-by-school.
