    Hopefully coach Look made sure Saddleback Valley is a DII school so no parents or administrators complain!!

    From a former parent, the real story is that the Administrators are clueless. Parents have been complaining bout D2 ball for yrs. Look don’t care. He has complete control of the athletic program. Its all about him and his favorite players (sons of iolani).
