Sierra Canyon’s second place finish, consisted of 13 points credited to championships in soccer, volley- ball, and a second place finish in softball. Taking third place by tiebreaker was Mater Dei with 12 points. The Monarchs claimed a title in volleyball, second place in soccer along with semifinal appearances in track & field and water polo.
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 good- will among the 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 finish; two points for advancing to the semifinal round or a third place finish in a team-place finish sport (i.e. cross country, golf, swimming and diving, track and field); and one point for a fourth place finish in a team-place finish sport. In cases where a tie occurs the top ten schools were de- termined 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.
