    I rather have st.francis over the mtown. Better competition for the league. St.francis would be the league favorite but I think this year Muir and CV could compete and win.

    The pacific should drop Glendale and Hoover. No rivalries would be disturbed. Keep the league at 6 teams. And it allows one more non league game. Each of the remaining 6 teams schedule tough non league teams. ( muir schedule is questionable the last 2 season but usually the schedule up)By doing this would give pacific a strength in playoff voting.

    Arroyo stays in MVL…. They run the show why would they leave? What’s in it for them? As for all the other sports…. MVL isn’t great, average at best.

    Arroyo- Football, Baseball, Wrestling, Track
    EM- Girls Basketball, Volleyball and Girls Wrestling
    South- Football, baseball
    Gabrielino- Girls basketball, boys basketball, volleyball

    Mountain View, Rosemead, Marshall are all losing their ability to compete in any sport honestly.

    @Hacienda,
    I agree with you. Arroyo would get pounded in each league. But the problem with moving Arroyo isn’t football. It’s every other sport. There’s an outside chance that maybe they can compete in the VVL in football. But in all other sports they get embarrassed. And that’s what you have to look at. And EMUSD is not going to sign off on separating one of there member schools. There in lies the problem.

    @fridayknighta That was the most ridiculous statement you have ever said. Arroyo would only beat Walnut and would get demolished by everyone else in the Hacienda. Arroyo would battle with Baldwin Park and Covina for the last playoff spot in the Valle Vista because they would get blasted by San Dimas and Northview.

    Anonymous- How about a collaboration of the the two leagues, and just make them a “conference.” Then divide the conference into an A-League and a B-League for each sport. For example:

    Football
    A-League: Monrovia, San Marino, Arcadia, Burbank, Burroughs, Muir
    B-League: Blair (well…maybe not), LC, South Pas, TC, Glendale, Hoover, Pasadena

    In order to preserve rivalry games like the Turkey Tussle, each league would be scheduled to play one team from the opposite league, and it wouldn’t count towards league standings. It’d just be a non-league game.

    If a team does well in the B-League, they’d move up. Conversely, if a team didn’t do so well in the A-League, they’d move down.

    I think if you removed Charter Oak Arroyo can hang in the Hacienda league. Maybe move Arroyo and Monrovia into the Hacienda remove Walnut and Charter Oak?

    Arroyo should go east not west. Pacific and Rio Hondo should swap teams. Cv tried to sneak out of the Pacific to the Rio a couple of years back but it got shut down. Cv, Arcadia, Sm, Monrovia, Muir, Burroughs, and Burbank in a new pacific league. Lc, Tc, South Pas, Glendale, Hoover, and Pasadena in the new Rhl. Obviously because of the turkey tussle it would be impossible, but it makes sense from a competition stand point. Finishing top 3 in that pacific would impressive to say the least.

    Crescenta Valley and Arcadia are arch rivals so…. not going to happen

    I’m all for Arroyo moving into a tougher league. I think it’s time as well. What league would we fit in? The Valle vista? I’ve heard the Hacienda? Create a new league… Monrovia San Marino Arroyo Rosemead Temple city and Arcadia
    What do y’all think?

    How is Warren not mentioned in your Top 20?
    From T. Peterson: We seriously considered them. They are right on the bubble.

    Put Arroyo in Valle Vista and Baldwin Park in Mission Valley.

    @sgvfan
    Excellent point. It’s about time Arroyo gets put to the test and moves to a more competitive league/division

    Covina should be at least behind northview on this team. Only competitive team arroyo has faced. And have blown out everyone since

    Not sure any Mission Valley team belongs in the Top 20. Sorry Arroyo but zero comp. in your league. Maybe time to consider swimming over to the deep end of the pool…just sayin
