LONG BEACH Riverside and Clovis were mentioned Thursday at the CIF-Southern Section Council meeting as potential host cities for a proposed state swimming and diving championship meet.

The proposal for the championships, which would begin in May 2015, is expected to be voted on by the State Federated Council in February.

Southern Section assistant commissioner Kristine Palle said a bid process would determine the site of the meet. The proposal -- generated by the Southern Section -- calls for the championships to be held over two days.

The Southern Section would receive five entries per event, the most among the 10 statewide sections.

Several other states host championships, some featuring different divisions.

In action by the section council, a football-specific releaguing appeal by Royal was upheld, 30-6, with 39 abstentions.

Royal’s plan creates two football-only leagues for 2014-2018 for the Marmonte and Camino association. Group A will be comprised of Westlake, Moorpark, Camarillo, Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park. Group B will consist of Royal, Oak Park, Simi Valley, Agoura and Calabasas.

In Orange County releaguing, the new Century League Conference will be divided into leagues named Crestview and North Hills, Villa Park athletic director Tom Fox said.

The Crestview League will include the most competitive teams, he said. For football in 2014-15, the Crestview will be feature Villa Park, Foothill, Esperanza and Yorba Linda while the North Hills will be home to El Modena, Canyon, Brea Olinda and El Dorado, Fox said.
