It’s official: OAL won’t join NCS

I just got a quick phone call from Oakland Athletic League/Section commissioner Michael Moore Sr. to inform me that all recommendations passed unanimously at today’s Oakland Board of Education meeting, meaning that the OAL will continue as its own section of the CIF and do a number of other things to improve itself.

Here is the link to the resolution that was passed.

Also, here’s the link to the recommendation that Commissioner Moore presented the first public hearing in August about the OAL remaining its own section and then the one he presented at last week’s public hearing that has details on how to improve the section, which was met with approval and then turned into the resolution that was passed tonight.
