DePaul Catholic lost, but in some ways won when it came to its request to the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association to be removed from Division I in the Big North Conference's new alignment.

The NJSIAA denied the school's request, but did give the team with the smallest enrollment in the all non-public division a little relief by ruling that DePaul doesn't have to play powers Bergen Catholic and Don Bosco Prep for two years.
