Meeting slated today LBCC pitcher Junior college recruiting? BY PAUL McLEOD Staff Writer A recent state court ruling declaring junior college residency requirements of the California Junior and Community College Assn. invalid has left California junior college officials in a state of confusion. The court also warned the CJCCA Committee On Athletics that, other parts of its bylaws might also be overturned if challenged in the courts. Declared void were sections 6.031 and 6.032 of the CJCCA state athletic ,code. Parts of Chapter Five of the code were also declared invalid. The code specifically stated .that an athlete 18 years of age or older and not living with his parents may establish athletic eligibility by passing two semesters or three quarters of academic work in the college for that area, or he could obtain eligibility if he lived continously hi the college district at least two years. The trial court agreed that the rules were designed to p r e v e n t soliciting of a resident of a particular college district to take part in the athletic program of another district, but it pointed to a section of the state Educational Code that provides t h a t a high school graduate need not be a resident of a junior · college district in order to be admitted to that district's -community college program. The CJCCA is a private, v o l u n t a r y organization consisting of 95 public community colleges and three private colleges in the state. Its prime function is the regulation and supervision of member athletic competition. The decision came after Cabrillo College, a member of the association, openly defied the code, using athletes f r o m outside its district. Cabrillo was disciplined, but following numerous injunctions a San Francisco Appeals Court took the case. Speculation has arisen that the ruling will openly allow recruiting of a t h - letes, such as that done by f o u r - y e a r colleges, throughtout the state and perhaps of athletes from outside California. "I hope it doesn't open up recruiting," said Robert Annand, chairman of the COA. "We don't want this to happen. There is no need to recruit here." Vern W o r k e n t i n e , executive secretary of the organization, also ex- presseu worry uver liie decision. "Unless we keep a handle on it right now it certainly will open up out of ' state recruiting," he said. "Those coaches with the best ties in the Midwest or East will certainly have an edge." At a meeting this afternoon in B a k e r s f i e l d , A n n a n d , president and superintendent of West Hills, College, is expected to propose a new plan. "We're going to require that an athlete transfering into a district from another complete 24 semester units at that school before he would be eligible. It's the same rule the NCAA uses and they've won every court case so far." At Reedley College, Workentine agreed with Annand. "We must re-write sections of our code to save it," he said. "It looks like the 24-unit law will go into effect." A n n a n d promised to have the new law in effect by Feb. 1. In Long Beach, the court decision and subsequent association meeting with constitutional lawyers in S a c r a m e n t o Thursday added to the vuiiiUDiuii, "I can't say anything about it right now," declared Long Beach City College athletic director Rollie Eilerts. "I'm still not certain where this leaves us." Viking basketball coach Bill Fraser felt the ruling wouldn't change things at the school. "I won't .go outside my district to get people. We've got good material here," he said. "A JC that comes into our district 1 and 'offers a kid something can't offer him as much as we have here. If the kid leaves it's because he's afraid he can't cut it here." A spokesman for the Junior College Athletic Bureau, a .weekly sports release, agreed. · "It won't change anything. Recruiting will still be a violation." Cerritos College official Don Hall, a Southern Cali- ·fornia representative for the CJCCA, felt the new 24-unit ruling would curtail recruitment. "Only if a school openly ignores us will the new unit law not be effective," he said.
