Alemany proposal passes 12-11 to send Cathedral to PAC-5 while dropping Salesian to the Mission

After the CIF-Southern Section Executive Committee voted 13-3-3 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; Bishop Alemany submitted a new proposal on Tuesday that barely passed 12-11. The new proposal basically swaps Salesian with Cathedral, moving Cathedral into the powerful Catholic South and PAC-5 while dropping Salesian to the Mission League. Salesian appealed to CIF because it balked at the idea of essentially moving from Division 10 to Division I and prefered to play in the Mission League, though rumors persist that it does not want to be in the same league as rival Cathedral. Well, Salesian got its wish with Carthedral publicly stating at Tuesday’s meeting that it will appeal the decision to CIF, just like Salesian did. The CAA has until April 30 to submit Alemany’s proposal at which time Cathedral can appeal, leaving the next move up to CIF.

    Salesian is in Division 13 which is the weakest division.

  • AMAT 73

    We all know Cathedral will defintely appeal this decision . Why not just make the Serra League , AMAT , ND , Loyola , Serra , Chaminade , Alemany and take the top 3 to the playoffs . Seems none of the other including Crespi , as there are rumors of Crespi buddying up to St Francis to get them into the Mission as Thomas wants relief due low turn out (65 total kids ) in their program .
