The California Interscholastic Federation will hold their first state championship in Clovis next year. Read more here.
Early plans are for the meet to include 32 entrants in each event, with each of CIF's 10 sections getting a specific amount of guaranteed spots in each event.
Don't you wish TISCA had been pushing the UIL - seriously pushing - to get twenty-four (24) to Austin these past few years?
Such a shame that we only take sixteen (16) per event, leaving All-Americans at home.
The edge California athletes will gain over our kids will be tremendous. More of their top swimmers will advance to their state meet without having to rest/shave to qualify.
With our new alignments (6A & 5A) and only eight (8) call-up slots available in each, many of our top kids will have to rest/shave for region - maybe even district!
