The first step in what may be a major exodus from Toledo's City Athletic League is expected to be taken Wednesday night at a school board meeting of the Oregon School District.
Clay High School athletic director Mike Donnelly has confirmed that one item on the meeting agenda will be a proposal that his school pull out of the City League and be one of several current CL member schools to form a new league.
Such a move has been speculated in recent months in light of the financial crisis impacting Toledo Public Schools.
On the meeting agenda, under the category of "Athletic League Resolution," a statement is included that recommends that: "...the Oregon City School District withdraw from the Toledo City League effective at the end of the 2010-2011 school year and form a new league with St. John's, Central Catholic, St. Francis, St. Ursula, Notre Dame, Whitmer, Findlay, Fremont, and Lima Senior."
