CHATTER: RULING DISPUTED.
David Dicker has a Southern Section rule book. Dean Crowley also has one. But they might not be the same edition.
Crowley, the Southern Section commissioner, said the Southern Section was allowed to tell the Catholic Athletic Association in October that it needed to restructure its leagues. Dicker, an Encino attorney representing the Alemany High parents, says it wasn't in the section's authority to mandate a releaguing.
Crowley said the rule book Dicker is using is outdated.
``We went through an amendment to our constitution which allowed some movement to our areas,'' Crowley said.
The argument still might be raging, but it seems obvious Alemany's football team will be playing in the Del Rey League next season and in 2000. The section voted on its leagues last week despite Dicker's appeal. . . .
It should be noted that Alemany lost to future league opponent Loyola 60-20 last season. But the Indians also beat St. Paul, which is in the new Del Rey League and lost to Notre Dame by a point (14-13). . . .

Including last year's Daily News Bernie Milligan All-Star baseball game, Tim Arroyo made his first two hits at Cal State Northridge count. Representing Kennedy High, Arroyo hit a homer in the Milligan game in June 1998, then hit a grand slam for CSUN on Jan. 23 to lift the Matadors to a 10-6 extra-inning win over San Francisco. . . .
Terrmel Sledge, who transferred from CSUN to Long Beach State when the school cut baseball in the spring of '97, is enjoying his change of scenery. The 49ers are ranked No. 2 in Baseball America's preseason poll and Sledge is favored to repeat as the Big West Conference's player of the year.
Sledge, a senior outfielder, batted .392 with 13 homers and 26 stolen bases last year at Long Beach State. . . .
Former Camarillo football and baseball standout Joe Borchard is projected as an All-Pacific 10 outfielder by Baseball America. Borchard batted .355 with 10 homers and 55 RBI last year as a freshman. . . .

The Hicks brothers - Jonathan and Matthew - made their marks at North Hollywood in the past couple of years as football players. But the latest Hicks sibling - Charlene - is a basketball player.
