The discussion for a new state meet needs to be started again. The Nothern CA teams have a clear disadvantage.

Here's a great article written by Keith Conning, the man who has been the announcing the state meet for the past 14 years.

It appears that Aptos and Las Lomas are the only schools returning their entire team next year.

It seems that every year the Oakland and SF Section teams finish dead last by a large margin. It is unfair to a team like Monte Vista girls (I'm not a parent/coach) to sit home while two teams so far inferior go.

Why not have those two sections compete for one berth and grant the other berth to the 3rd NCS finisher? Why are they separate Sections to begin with?

And how many SS schools stayed at home that are faster than qualifiers from many sections?

Dear Anonymous 1:02 p.m.:
Sections are both regional and political divisions within the state CIF organization. California is a federation, so each section has considerable autonomy. San Francisco and Oakland were major metropolitan centers when the CIF was first organized almost a century ago. Demographics have changed things considerably since then.

Cross country has been a state meet sport for 26 years, which is relatively recent. During that time the structure of the championships has shifted to try to accommodate 1) more teams and 2) more teams that are top-end competitive.

As much as every year there are teams in the championship races that are clearly not as fast as teams that are sitting at home that day, those teams are still the representatives of their section. And since each section is a political entity, none will give up that representation just because another team from a different section is faster.

The current method of determining a base number of teams from each section (ranging from 1 to 4) plus additional teams based on previous year's showings of teams from each section allows us to at least get more teams from each section that have over the years had consistently strong teams. That's why the NCS has 5 D-V boys teams and 6 D-V girls teams at the state meet.

Monte Vista did not run as a team for 2 reasons: 1) The NCS historically does not have teams that place in the top 10 at the state meet in D-I, so we only get 2 teams. and 2) they got beat at the NCS meet in a heartbreak tie-breaker for the last spot.

There is almost no chance in our lifetimes that the regional political identity of each section will allow any of them to yield up their share of representation at the State Meet. However, there is a movement to attempt to include more teams in the championship races and allocate these additional spots to sections based on a similar format of historical strength as we do now.

Peter Brewer,
What you describe sounds like the Electoral College vs direct popular election. Not something that will change overnight! But I bet that a grass-roots movement for change would have some effect.

1. Monte Vista's opponent (Amador Valley) who they tied at NSC finished 18th at state. Granada whose team time aveage was 30 seconds faster at NCS and State than Amador Valley, was 13th.
2. I would rather blow up the state meet and make it a single, all division race. Have a selection committee decide, for example, on the top 10 Northern California (sjs, ccs, ncs, central, no, sf, oak) and top 10 Southern California teams. Granted Northern California had 1 (Madera South) of top 10 boys team times and 3 (St. Francis, Buchanan, Davis), so these numbers can be tweaked to favor the south.
3. Have a Northern California 5 divisional championship where teams can compete on equitable CBED values. The state meet in D5 had 6 Northern California girls and 4 boys teams in the top ten where all schools are under 500 In D1, Carlmont took 10th at state whose CBED (2094) would be a D3 school (1251-2099) in the Southern Section
