: When did the private schools sue the CIF
: about re-leaguing?
: If you are talking about the Mater Dei
: lawsuit that had nothing to do about
: releaguing - Was this a different lawsuit?
a few years back there was an attempt made to force Oaks Christian, St Bonaventure and Damien/St Lucy to play in the Catholic Athletic Association (CAA). The schools fought the move over travel issues for non-football sports (eg: St Bonnie would have had to play road games at Damien)-and won. Result: a conference set up for Marmonte football (3 four team leagues) and the new Coastal Canyon league in all other sports-and Damien/St Lucy (which were part of the lawsuit also) in the Baseline League. St Lucy was forced to play Baseline League (and hasn't been willing to upgrade programs)-hence the pending departure.
A similar situation with different outcome with St Joseph in Lakewood-when SJB went into the Trinity League they didn't come along for the ride-hence there are now only 5 girls in the TL. Big mistake IMHO-Rosary (very similar school) did make the move with Servite and has had success at that level.
