The CIF-SS developed this recognition program based upon comprehensive excellence in interscholastic competition. The purpose of this program is to enhance the spirit of competition, sportsmanship, and goodwill among student athletes and member schools.

The winners are determined by a point system that provides: five points for a divisional championship; three points for a divisional runner up; two points for advancing to the semifinal round or third place finish in a team-place sport (i.e. cross country, golf, swimming and diving, track and field); and one point finish in a team place sport. In cases where a tie occurs the top ten schools were determined by several tiebreaker methods.

“We applaud the accomplishments of these programs due to their hard work and dedication that has resulted in their success,” said Rob Wigod, Commissioner of Athletics.
