CCL Statement, via Pat Mahoney, President of the CCL Board of Control, on 3 schools leaving the CCL for the start of 2018-2019 Season
On Friday February 24, 2017, The Chicago Catholic League (CCL) received official notification from St. Francis of Wheaton, Bishop McNamara and Aurora Christian regarding their application to, and acceptance into, the Metro Suburban Conference starting in the 2018-19 school year.
While the CCL is disappointed in their decisions to leave our great league, we appreciate and understand that every school has to do what they feel is in their best interest and do what best meets the needs of their respective stakeholders.
The three departing schools will fulfill their CCL schedules and contracts for the 2017-18 school year - which will allow the remaining schools in the CCL to work out new schedules for all our sports.
The CCL will remain committed to providing quality competitive experiences for our member schools and their students – we will continue to strive to create divisions and schedules based on parity which will allow schools to compete at an appropriate level allowing for opportunities for success in various sports. The CCL will continue to be committed to listening to the needs of our member schools and try to help all our schools.
