The CIF Sac-Joaquin Section announced on May 29 the top 10 boys and girls athletic programs in the Third Annual Commissioner’s Cup.
The Commissioner’s Cup is a program designed to recognize the all-around top athletic programs in the Section based on comprehensive excellence in interscholastic competition.
On the boys’ side, Jesuit earned 37 points to claim the crown. The Marauders were led by Section championships in cross country, soccer and track and field. In second place, 10 points behind, was St. Mary’s. The Rams saw their teams win Section titles in water polo, basketball, swimming and diving and track and field.
On the girls’ side, St. Francis earned 30 points for the crown. The Troubadours won Section championships in cross country and track and field. This breaks a two-year run of the Davis Sr. girls winning the Commissioner’s Cup. Runner-up Whitney was seven points back; the Wildcats won their lone championship in softball.
The winners are determined by a points system that includes five points for a Section championship, three points for a Section runner-up placing, two points for making the SJS semifinals or placing third and one point for placing fourth in a team-place finish sport.
