The CIF Southern Section announced the top 10 boys' and girls' athletic programs in the 19th Annual Commissioner's Cup on Monday.
Laguna Beach High finished sixth in the boys' top 10 rankings.
"It is a great honor to our male athletes and coaches that they are being honored by the CIF in this manner," Laguna Beach Athletic Director Mike Churchill said. "To finish sixth, and in such outstanding company as the other honored schools, is a tremendous achievement."
The CIF-SS developed the recognition program based on comprehensive excellence in interscholastic competition. The purpose of the program is to enhance the spirit of competition, sportsmanship and goodwill among the student athletes and member schools.
The winners were determined by a point system that included: five points for a divisional championship; three points for a divisional runner-up finish; two points for advancing to the semifinal round or a third-place finish in a team sport; and one point for a fourth-place finish in a team. In cases where a tie occurs, the top ten schools were determined by several tie-breaker methods.
