CIF-SS Small Enrollment Division Preview:
Frontier League 2001-02--(Nov.1, 2001)

FRONTIER LEAGUE
Calabasas
Malibu
Nordhoff
Santa Clara
Santa Paula

The Frontier League, it is rumored, will be no more after this season, at least some of the teams in it will be moving to other leagues.  In the meantime, it will definitely be around this year.  Santa Clara, which won the league, loses All-CIF Albert Soria, their best player from last season, somehow, the Saints just keep on finding a way to get it done each year.  We have scant information right now on the rest of the players besides those listed (who are anticipated to be returning from last season's playoff rosters), but we do have solid schedules. Look for Calabasas to also challenge Santa Clara and Nordhoff;  from what we know, while Santa Paula was moderately successful, they lost half their varsity roster to graduation, which might not seem like much, but it is. And we'll be the first to admit, we know nothing about Malibu.
