The Cape-Atlantic League will have a bit of new look for the 2014 football season.
The league will keep two divisions but those divisions will be based primarily on enrollment. The one exception is that perennial power St. Joseph will continue to play against the league’s largest schools.
Here are the changes: Vineland, Ocean City and St. Augustine move from the National to the American conference. Holy Spirit and Oakcrest drop to the National Conference.
The CAL released its realignment Friday afternoon:
Here are the new divisions for 2014:
American Conference: St. Joseph; Millville; Absegami; Atlantic City; Egg Harbor Township; St. Augustine; Mainland Regional; Vineland and Ocean City.
National Conference: Holy Spirit; Cedar Creek; Bridgeton; Oakcrest; Lower Cape May; Buena Regional; Middle Township; Pleasantville.
The new alignment preserves Thanksgiving rivalries. Teams in the American Conference get full schedules. Teams in the National Conference will have to schedule one non-conference game.
