Catholic Athletic Assn. approves new sports leagues

The Catholic Athletic Association made up of 43 private schools voted Wednesday to approve a releaguing proposal from L.A. Cathedral that will put schools in association and league formats for all sports but football. The proposal received 22 votes. The format begins in 2014.

The Mission League will become an eight-team league made up of Alemany, Chaminade, Crespi, Harvard-Westlake, Loyola, Notre Dame, Oaks Christian and St. Francis, plus Flintridge-Sacred Heart and Louisville for girls. 

The league won't get an extra playoff spot with the expansion, which is why its current members opposed the proposal, except for St. Francis, which didn't support an alternative proposal.

League A will be an association made up of Bishop Amat, Bishop Montgomery, Cantwell-Sacred Heart, Cathedral, Damien, Bosco Tech, La Salle, Mary Star of the Sea, Pomona Catholic, Serra, St. Bernard, St. Bonaventure, St. Joseph, St. Lucy's, St. Monica, St. Paul.

League C: Bell-Jeff, Salesian, St. Anthony, St. Genevieve, Verbum Dei.

League D (girls): Alverno, Bishop Conaty-Loretto, Holy Family, Ramona Convent, Sacred Heart of Jeus, San Gabriel Mission.

League E (girls): Bell-Jeff, St. Anthony, St. Genevieve, St. Mary's, St. Matthias.

League F (girls): Immaculate Heart, Marlborough, Marymount, Notre Dame Academy.

The CAA will next vote on leagues for football only.
