The CIF-Southern Section Executive Committee voted 13-3-3 on Wednesday to approve Salesian’s appeal to the 2014-18 Parochial Area Catholic League South football placement, which would have put Salesian in a Pac-5 football league with Loyola, Serra and Bishop Amat. Salesian balked at the idea of essentially moving from Division 10 to Division I and would prefer to play in the Mission League, though rumors persist that it does not want to be in the same league as rival Cathedral, which is currently slated to be in the Mission League. What happens next is that CAA must either propose changes or reaffirm their original plans for final approval or appeal to the CIF-SS on or before April 30. The CAA is set to meet on April 23 to discuss the appeal and map out the next move. The CAA expects to vote on a counter proposal on April 28 that it can send to CIF on April 30 for final approval.
How will it turn out?: Below is what the CAA had approved before Wednesday’s appeal. Question now is what happens to Salesian? My guess is that ultimately, either Cathedral or St. Francis replaces Salesian in the Catholic League South.
