Campolindo Athletic Department named Division 3 State School of Year

For the eighth time, Campolindo has been named the Division (seven times Division 3, one time Division 2) State School of the year by Cal-Hi Sports. The first time they earned the honor was in 2005, then in 2011, 2012 2015 and 2019. In 2020, the selection was for Division 2 and in 2022 and 2023, it was for Division 3. There were no schools named in 2021 due to the pandemic.
In their announcement Cal-Hi singled out the girls cross country team winning their third straight CIF title, the boys cross country team finishing second in the D3 state meet, the basketball team winning the CIF NCS Division 2 final, the football team finishing the season with a 12-1 record and making it to the NCS Division 2 final, the girls swim team finishing second in the non-divisional final team standings and the girls water polo CIF NorCal D1 seminal finish and the boys water polo CIF NorCal D2 semifinal finish.
Though not highlighted in the announcement, other accomplishments that were taken into consideration were the girls lacrosse team making it to the NCS Division 2 final, the baseball team making it to the NCS final, the boys water polo team making it to the NCS semifinal, the boys golf team winning the DAL tournament, the Boys volleyball team making it to the semifinals of the NCS, the girls volleyball team making it to the second round of the state championship, and the boys wrestling team finishing third in the NCS.
Mark Tennis, the co-publisher of Cal-Hi sports for the last 25 years, has long appreciated the success of the Campolindo program. "It all started with Bob Wilson (1998-2013) who originally set it all up and was a great athletic director," Tennis said. "A lot of it comes from the stability of the coaches at the school and also from the competition that they have with Acalanes and Miramonte who they have to beat initially which helps in the process."
Campolindo Athletic Director Ray Meadows has seen the school win the award four times under his leadership. "This award reflects the deep commitments of our student athletes, their parents, our coaching staff, the school community, and the Moraga community as a whole."
