Providence Catholic brings home title in All Catholic League final
The Celtics of Providence Catholic were crowned IHSA Class 4A State Champions by defeating Catholic league foe St. Rita 4-1.
Recognized as the best baseball conference in the state by many experts, the Celtics and Mustangs proved the experts correct, when they met in the Championship.
The Chicago Catholic League is proud of both schools for being excellent ambassadors of our fine league.
Another Excellent year for the Chicago Catholic League
The 2013-14 school year, once again, proved to be a successful one for the CCL. Catholic League schools earned:
27 IHSA Regional Championships 9 IHSA Sectional Championships 3 Super-Sectional Championships,br> 2 state titles 3 2nd place finishes
Mount Carmel claimed, yet another football crown and Providence Catholic captured the baseball championship in Class 4A. Loyola Academy took runner-up honors in 8A for football, Saint Ignatius was runner-up in 2A in soccer and St. Rita took 2nd place in 4A for Baseball.
All in all, 14 of the 16 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 tremendous year. Eight schools qualified for the IHSA State playoffs. St. Rita won the Prep Bowl title, while Loyola Academy was the runner-up in class 8A and Mount Carmel 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!
