California XC State Meet All-Time Podium teams (boys and girls)

Check out every team that has made it to the podium (top 3 in any division) since the first California state cross country meet in 1987. Two NCS teams are at the top of the girls' list while a SJS team is near the top for the boys. (photo to the left is the 2019 Bellarmine boys who just finished in 3rd place this past Saturday).

NCS vs CCS at the state meet

A few years ago, NCS adjusted its divisions to better match up with the rest of the state (mostly SS) at the California state meet. CCS has continued to use the same divisional breakdowns with an even amount of teams in each division. You can view the CBEDS at these links:

CCS Boys:
CCS Girls:

Here are the results from this past state meet comparing the two sections. I am curious as to what people see when they look at the following results. I know NCS has always been strong in Division V so having that many teams do well at state is par for the course. With having only 8 teams in Division I, NCS is able to keep their 2 auto qualifiers and move teams to divisions that they can compete fairly at the state meet. I know in CCS, we have teams that don't belong in Division I (size-wise) but because the divisions are divided equally, most CCS schools go up against much larger schools at the state meet which does make a difference. Anyways, have it. Would love to hear your thoughts.

Shout out to Ethan Ashby (formerly of College Prep and 4th from left) and the Pomona-Pitzer men's cross country team for winning the 2019 NCAA DIII National Championships in Louisville, KY. Ethan finished 4th for the Sagehens and 68th overall on the muddy 8 km course. This was the first time the Sagehens have made the championship podium in program history.
