In a season filled with change, Valley Christian Academy is the only local high school that isn’t moving to a new section or league.

But that doesn’t mean there won’t be major changes.

Their league — the Coast Valley League (CVL) lost one team.

“Shandon just doesn’t have the numbers so they’re not fielding a team,” said longtime defensive coordinator Randy Stanford. “So the CVL will have Coast Union, Cuyama Valley, Maricopa and us.”

And there will be major changes to VCA's team after the Lions were hit hard by graduation, losing five starters from their 8-man team.

So, will the Lions be able to recover from a big hit from graduation? Find out by watching this video and by picking up our special Football Preview tab on Sunday in the Santa Maria Times or the Lompoc Record.
