IRVINE Orange County principals voted during their final re-leaguing meeting Thursday to create a conference out a slightly new-look Century League that adds Yorba Linda.
The eight-school conference will add Yorba Linda to the existing group of Brea, Foothill, Villa Park, El Modena, Esperanza, Canyon and El Dorado. The conference gives the Century the ability to create two separate football leagues, for example, or operate two leagues under the banner of the conference.
South County’s Coast View Athletic Association also features a conference configuration with the South Coast and the Sea View leagues.
Yorba Linda opposed the move and was the only school moved in the county’s re-leaguing recommendation for the 2014-2018 cycle. The recommendation needs to be approved by the CIF-Southern Section council.
The final proposal had a big-time rival today but county leagues appear as if they will remain the same – except for the Century conference.
