The Eli Sports Network (ESN) began a new tradition 2 years ago where at the end of the year we crown the “Champion of Champions”. This is a combined boys and girls overall sports Champion or the ultimate State Champion. We also crown a boys Champion and girls overall Champion. To do this we created a scoring system that rewards consistency over a single sport Championship. It’s great to be the State Basketball Champs for both girls and boys but how did your school’s cross country team or golf team or swim team do is what we wanted to know.

This system gives equal reward for State Titles whether it’s a Football Championship with 5,000 people in attendance to Slowpitch with a few hundred to Golf where a few family members or friends come to watch. It’s not about popularity it’s about results.

Some of the classification’s have an advantage over others when it comes to comparing classifications against others for example the B’s do not have Girls Bowling or boys Swimming so they cannot earn points in those sports. This is why our first focus is the individual classification Champions for each boys and girls. So we will have a Champion for 4A boys and 4A girls all the way down to 1B.

We only rank schools in their base classification but count the points they earn in a different classification towards their total. For example, in 1B boys, Liberty Bell is a 2B school but played down a classification at 1B. They won the 1B football title so that counts toward their overall total as a 2B school. 

In the case of split schools coming together to play just a couple of sports then each get half of the points awarded. Those schools that play all their sports together and are known as a combined program get all the points and are identified as that entity. For instance, Morton-White Pass high schools have been together as a single sports program for many years now and they are credited as the combined program. Meantime, Toledo and Winlock boys soccer have played together for many years as team United but all their other sports are separate. In that case any points earned by team United would be split between Toledo and Winlock..

Finally, and this is where the larger schools do have an advantage with more sports to participate, the All Classification Combined Champion. This is how we scored each and every tournament. For tournaments that clearly had 8 places each place got the points assigned below to that placing. When there are multiple teams tied for one place such as all the quarterfinal losers in football all get 5th place which is a total of 4 teams. We add up the tied points 5th thru 8th which totals 20 points and divide them equally so each quarterfinal loser or 5th place gets 5 points.
