I’ve been keeping an eye on the comments and it was time for a new post for the ongoing discussion.
From a competitive standpoint, combining the varsity and modified teams from Clarkstown North and Clarkstown South would give the section another strong team. Now here comes the bad news. A number of kids will be prohibited from representing their school on the ice. It’s also doubtful the programs will ever go back to the way things were if and when the budget crisis eases.
School districts cannot afford to make temporary fixes.
John Orlando passed a long a few notes yesterday … We already know about Eastchester-Tuckahoe-Bronxville shrinking to Eastchester-Bronxville. Some league alignments will also be changing. Somers/North Salem and John Jay are going from Conference 3 to Conference 1, while Ossining is going from Conference 1 to Conference 3.
Can we please name these divisions?
I also confirmed that Iona Prep is looking for a new coach. Tim Turnbull is leaving for personal reasons. He says the time demands became too much.
