Ten teams were in the Elite division two weeks ago. The Competition Committee, which includes Madlax and Team 91, met last week and changed their minds. The Elite division will be set with the same 8 from last year. VLC and South River were told by the Commissioner they were both not moved up because neither Team has any ReClassed players. Team 91 who lost all their games last season moved a bunch of kids down from the 22 to the 23 Team was allowed to stay. So the Elite division will be another 15/16 who cant play on age league.
So in other words VLC and South River get to battle it out with other 8th grade teams to see who the best 8th grade team is in the Mid-Atlantic while something called Elite will have a few 8th graders mixed in with kids who should be 9th and 10th graders. Got it.
