Reaction to NCS Open Division, competitive equity changes

Today the North Coast Section Board of Managers voted in a four-team Open Division football playoff plan, and a competitive equity plan that moves some successful teams up a division in football, basketball, girls volleyball, water polo, baseball, softball and lacrosse. Read about it here.

Coaches are still absorbing what the changes will mean when they go into effect this fall. Here’s an early sampling of reaction from East Bay coaches:

Compiled by Phil Jensen and Daniel Mano

Campolindo football coach Kevin Macy:
(on competitive equity) “The variables that are thrown into this mix … I just want to stick to school size. … Who is the arbiter of competitive equity? I’m not a big believer in this. …. We are just fighting to keep football alive in our town. Our name has become much bigger than our kids.”

Clayton Valley Charter football coach Tim Murphy:
(On the Open Division) “Fired up about it. … I think everything that went down in the meeting is what I agree with. … The only negative thing is that a team that wins a section could be eliminated. … Now you are not allowing people to control their own destiny. That would be my only complaint. Everything else I agree with. Continue Reading

Track star Cooper Teare notches top national time

St. Joseph Notre Dame High School boys track star Cooper Teare gave the rest of the state’s distance runners, let alone the nation, something to think about.

Teare won the 3200 meters at the Dublin Distance Fiesta on March 19 with an outstanding time of 8 minutes, 56.07 seconds. It is the top high school time in the nation this season according to DyeStat.com’s national rankings.

St. Joseph Notre Dame High coach Tony Fong said via e-mail that Teare took the lead on the last lap, which he ran in 61 seconds. Teare passed through 1600 meters in 4:30, Fong said.

Two other runners also broke the elite nine-minute mark in the race.  Davis’ Michael Vernau was second in 8:57.70, and Armijo- Fairfield’s Luis Grijalva was third in 8:59.98.

Several guys with local ties became state champs Sunday when the City College of San Francisco men’s basketball team downed defending champion Saddleback College 68-57 for the CCCAA crown at Las Positas College.
