Chicago Catholic League
Another Tremendous year for the Chicago Catholic League
The 2014-15 school year, once again, proved to be a successful one for the Chicago Catholic League. CCL schools earned 28 IHSA Regional Championships, 13 IHSA Sectional Championships, 5 Super-Sectional Championships and four state titles with three 2nd place finishes.
Providence Catholic had a tremendous year with both their football and baseball programs claiming state championships!
St. Joseph had a great year as well, as they claimed the schools 2nd basketball state championship under legendary coach Gene Pingatore and a second place finish in soccer.
Newcomers to league, Montini Catholic, earned a runner-up finish in football, but earned yet another Wrestling championship.
Mount Carmel competed in the all Chicago Catholic League final for the IHSA state baseball championship coming up short and earning a second place finish. By the way, this is the second consecutive year that the 4A state baseball championship pitted two CCL schools against one another.
All in all, 18 of the 20 CCL schools won either a Regional or Sectional Championship. This is a tremendous accomplishment. The tough competition that our athletes face during conference play clearly prepares our schools for IHSA competition.
Our football programs also had another great year. Thirteen schools qualified for the IHSA State playoffs.
Loyola Academy won the Prep Bowl title, while Montini Catholic was the runner-up in class 5A and Providence Catholic brought home another State Championship in 7A.
This was another excellent year for our schools and our conference. We congratulate all of our coaches and athletes for a great year!
