Inderkum to join Delta League in 2024, latest proposal | Sports

The Inderkum Tigers of North Natomas would become the eighth member of a new Delta League if the latest proposal put to the Sac-Joaquin Section Realignment Committee is approved. At its most recent meeting on March 2, the committee proposed that the school, with 2,300 students, be admitted to the Delta League to join seven of the nine high schools that are part of the Elk Grove Unified School District.

In the three previous realignment proposals, section officials had seen the Capital Christian basketball team as part of the Delta. However, to make the Delta a full-time eight-team Division I league, Inderkum was added. This is a school whose enrollment has increased dramatically over the past six years.

The Tigers are currently competing in the Division III Capital Valley Conference.

This latest proposal, presented to the committee, retained the Sierra Foothill League – the other Division I league in the Northern Section – in eight Jesuit/St. Francis and Davis joined the current six-team mix of Folsom, Granite Bay, Oak Ridge, Del Oro, Rocklin and Whitney.

Attendees at recent realignment committee meetings said Del Oro officials asked to be removed from the SFL and go to the CVC. So far, this request seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

Locally, most officials like the idea of ​​moving Monterey Trail and Laguna Creek back into the Delta to join Cosumnes Oaks, Elk Grove, Franklin, Pleasant Grove, and Sheldon. They currently compete in the Metro Conference. The trips would all be within the Elk Grove area, they say, and in a sport like soccer where scheduling out-of-league games has become a chore, finding just three games each fall is an easier task .

Under this latest proposal, the Metro conference would only be an eight-team group during football and basketball seasons. Sacramento and Capital Christian would compete in those sports along with Antelope, Cordova, Grant, Kennedy, McClatchy, and River City on Metro. In other sports, the Dragons would be part of the Pioneer Valley League while Capital would be in the Golden Empire League.

The realigned Greater Sacramento League would consist of Burbank, Florin, Foothill, Johnson, Natomas, Rio Linda, Valley, and West Campus.

Upon committee approval, this league realignment would begin with the 2024-2025 school year. Its next meeting is scheduled for March 28th.
