The Desert Empire League started on Tuesday for boys and girls basketball, as well as boys and girls soccer.
There are 24 teams in total with 6 boys basketball, 6 girls basketball, 6 boys soccer and 6 girls soccer. All of them are competing locally for a league championship in what should be a very competitive season.
This is the second season of the DEL which was created for this exact reason - competitive balance.
