No proposed NCS switches for H-DNL teams


Ray Hamill/ – The Eureka girls celebrate their Dick Niclai championship last month.

By Ray Hamill — None of the H-DNL basketball teams are in line to switch divisions for next season’s North Coast Section playoffs.

After winning a section championship last weekend, the Ferndale boys will not move up and will remain in Division VI.

The divisions are updated annually after the section championships and are based on competitive equity and school size.

Last year the St. Bernard’s girls moved up to Division IV after winning two of the previous three D-V NCS championships.

The proposed updated divisions will be voted on at the section Board of Managers meeting later this month.

There are a total of 15 schools slated to switch divisions, including 11 boys teams.
