Loyola wins third consecutive Southern Section Commissioner's Cup

August 18, 2011 |  4:28 pm

Loyola has solidified its standing as one of the top athletic powerhouses in Southern California, winning a third consecutive Southern Section Commissioner's Cup for excellence in boys' sports.

It was a close call. The Cubs edged Oaks Christian, 20-19, after winning section titles in three sports: boys' basketball, swimming and diving and track and field. Loyola was also runner-up in cross country and a semifinalist in water polo.

Pasadena Poly finished third with 17 points, followed by a three-way tie among Servite, Mater Dei and Corona del Mar, each of which posted 16 points.

Loyola has now won five Commissioner's Cups, more than any other school in the 578-member section, since the award was established during the 1991-92 school year. All five have come in the last nine years.
