Wrestling: Sneak peek at one realignment proposal?

With the next step toward potental region realignment set for a vote on Wednesday, here is one of the proposals submitted to the NJSIAA wrestling committee a few months ago. This is not confirmed to be one of the two set to be reviewed and voted on, and is based solely on northing numbers and longitude.

The proposal below was crafted by Britt Malinsky, a contributor to Intermat wrestling web site, and submitted to the NJSIAA. The committee is also said to be considering another proposal that would be less of a dramatic shift statewide and would factor in the average of a school's power point totals for the past five seasons in addition to northing numbers.

Watchung Hills coach and New Jersey Coaches Association president Dan Smith said when reached on Saturday that even if one of the new proposals passes, it would still have to make its way through several other committees before becoming official.

The proposal below is odd in that it does not take into a account some of the perceived inequities with the current region alignment -- namely Bergen Catholic and Don Bosco Prep still being housed in Region 2 and what would clearly be a competitive in-balance in the new Region 3, which would feature state powers Hanover Park, Bound Brook, Phillipsburg, Delbarton and South Plainfield, along with all of the Hunterdon County schools minus Hunterdon Central. The Red Devils would remain in Region 5 under this one.
