Cathedral wins appeal, forcing Catholic League into a seven-team league and six-team Mission

STORY: The Catholic Athletic Association left the fate of two of its most important leagues in the hands of the CIF-Southern Section Council and when all the votes were in, several representatives from some of the Southland’s top parochial football powers were disappointed.
The CAA saw its football-only league proposals voted in at Wednesday’s council meeting, then successfully appealed by Cathedral High School, which left one of the major goals of the association unmet. That goal was to create two, four-team leagues that will likely compete in the Pac-5 Division.

WHAT HAPPENED: With Cathedral winning its appeal at CIF this morning, this is how the new football leagues will shape up for the Catholic and Mission League. The Catholic was hoping for a North and South league made up of four teams each to maximize four playoff berths. In a seven-team league, it only gets three guaranteed spots. The Mission is now a six-team league instead of five, guaranteeing three playoff spots.
