What happens to the D1 clubs that did not field a team this past fall because of school ball?? are they coming back to D1 in the spring? does anyone move up from lower division teams and will any of the D1 teams go back to D2?? how does that work?
Out of the 10 teams that were in D1 last spring – 6 competed in the fall, 2 did not field (Smithtown & Sachem) and 2 are reported done (RVC & Newfield).
Bayport, who competed in D1 this fall, finished 5th in D2 during the spring season. Little Neck won D2 going undefeated with Lake Grove and Great Neck tying for 2nd with 19 points each (Lake Grove beat Great Neck so they should get the nod over them).
My best guess is that D1 will look like the following:
• Carle Place
• Hemp Tigers
• Hemp Majico
• Deer Park – no fallout from a bad fall season
• Little Neck
• Lake Grove
No teams move up from D2 from this Fall’s campaign – 3 teams tying for the division, not enough to promote.
Would not be surprised if Carle Place and/or Hicksville goes to the Presidents league opening an additional spot – next in line would be Great Neck and then Bayport.
