Football: Catholic Athletic Assn. approves new leagues for 2014

May 7, 2013 | 11:11 am

The Catholic Athletic Assn. voted Tuesday to approve new football leagues beginning with the 2014 season.

The 26 schools approved a proposal from Serra. The new leagues:

League 1: Alemany, St. Bonaventure, Chaminade, Crespi, Oaks Christian.

League 2: Bishop Amat, Damien, Loyola, Notre Dame, Serra.

League 3: Cathedral, Harvard-Westlake, St. Francis, St. Paul.

League 4: Bishop Montgomery, Cantwell-Sacred Heart, La Salle, Salesian, St. Bernard, Verbum Dei.

League 5: Bell-Jeff, Bosco Tech, Mary Star, St. Anthony, St. Genevieve, St. Monica.

Leagues 1 and 2 are expected to join the Pac-5 Division.

Lawyers representing St. Bonaventure, Oaks Christian and Damien continue to explore options in challenging the Southern Section decision to place those three schools in the parochial releaguing area. An attorney representing St. Bonaventure attended Tuesday's meeting.
