Let's start this baby over.

#25. Los Angeles High School (Los Angeles, California)

2000: 47,572 (5th)
2001: 39,267 (15th)
2002: 44,670 (7th)
2003: 45,189 (6th)
2004: 45,875 (6th)
2005: 46,501 (8th)
2006: 46,151 (6th)
2007: 37,299 (did not advance to state)
2008: 41,238 (did not advance to state)
2009: 40,629 (30th)

Checkin' in at numba 25 is OCM's alma mater, LA High! From 2000-2006 LA was quite excellent, but since then they have fallen off the radar. Hopefully del Toro can get them pointed in the right direction in the next few years.

#25. Pearland High School (Pearland, Texas)
#24. Los Angeles High School (Los Angeles, California)

This one is Pearland, I just realized that I had one team on their twice.

2000: Did not advance to state
2001: Did not advance to state
2002: Did not advance to state
2003: Did not advance to state
2004: Did not advance to state
2005: 37,226 (33rd)
2006: 41,613 (13th)
2007: 41,223 (14th).
2008: 51,590 (1st; 3rd in the nation)
2009: 47,245 (1st; 6th in that nation)

So Pearland is back in at number 25. A controversial pick (since I'm from there and everything), but the school has proven it will be a dominant program for the next decade with their dominant performance in 2008 and a repeat championship in 2009. Robert Layne took over the program and almost immediately brought Pearland its first state appearance in the school's history. The rise by Pearland has been meteoric and is here to stay.

#25. Pearland High School (Pearland, Texas)
#24. Los Angeles High School (Los Angeles, California)
#23. Oliver Wendell Holmes (San Antonio, Texas)


2000: 47,862 (7th)
2001: 40,116 (10th)
2002: 42,451 (19th)
2003: 45,042 (6th)
2004: 43,896 (7th)
2005: 44,983 (3rd)
2006: 44,311 (2nd)
2007: 43,161 (5th)
2008: 44,300 (9th)
2009: 39,509 (24th)

6 straight top 10 finished, 3 straight top 5's. Wow. Holmes is quite consistent, with two off years, but they are one of the best programs in Texas. Their coach has them up their every year, and every year they have one person placing overall, even this year which was their worst. Holmes is an elite program, and where they come from, they are quite an extraordinary story.

#25. Pearland High School (Pearland, Texas)
#24. Los Angeles High School (Los Angeles, California)
#23. Oliver Wendell Holmes High School (San Antonio, Texas)
#22. Casa Grande High School (Petaluma, California)

2000: 43,867 (16th)
2001: 39,671 (11th)
2002: 43,957 (9th)
2003: 41,481 (14th)
2004: 44,030 (13th)
2005: 43,430 (12th)
2006: 41,030 (17th)
2007: 42,489 (19th)
2008: 48,538 (7th)
2009: 47,340 (4th)

Casa Grande was just another solid Cali school until BAM! 2008 came along and they pummeled every team of their size. 2008 and 2009 were landmark years for Casa Grande, and my bet is they will only get better until they are the new Edison High.

Casa Grande's coach retired this year. That'll probably set back the program...?

2000: 49,026 (3rd)
2001: 41,978 (5th)
2002: 44,007 (8th)
2003: Did not advance to state

2006: Did not advance to state
2007: 41,633 (16th)
2008: Did not advance to state
2009: Did not advance to state

A dominant program in the 90s and early in this decade, they have fallen off tremendously (do they even have a program?!). They were the private rep in Cali for years, but only 1 appearance at state since 2005 is quite bad...I don't know about this one, but according to what I got it's right.

#23. Oliver Wendell Holmes High School (San Antonio, Texas)
#22. Casa Grande High School (Petaluma, California)
#21. Bishop Alemany High School (Mission Hills, California)
#20. Acton-Boxborough Regional High School (Acton, Massachusetts)

2000: No score available
2001: 40,652 (1st; 9th in nation)
2002: 44,230 (1st; 8th in nation)
2003: 45,450 (1st; 5th in nation)
2004: 48,977 (1st; 4th in nation)
2005: 41,375 (1st; 9th in nation)
2006: 42,921 (1st; 6th in nation)
2007: 44,657 (1st; 7th in nation)
2008: 44,705 (1st; 13th in nation)
2009: 42,253 (1st; 11th in nation)

Acton-Boxborough is the first school from a lol-state in the top 25 (only?) and have been a mainstay at nationals since 2000, when they were upset by Weymouth and their 9,000 honors. A-B has been in the top 5 6 times in their history, one of the best records. They have had their worst two finishes ever at nationals the last two years, but hopefully they can keep it up and get back on track.

For the first year, at least. Most truly "good" teams can keep up their performance as long as the new coach is just as dedicated/motivating, though...

That's unfortunate! That will probably kill their program, as it usually does. Hopefully not though.

And yay, SOMEONE commented.

PROVING ITSELF TO BE A DOMINANT PROGRAM FOR THE NEXT DECADE DOES NOT MAKE IT ONE OF THE BEST PROGRAMS IN THIS ONE.

look at the title of the competition. you'd have a tough time defending the assertion that because Pearland showed up for the last two years of this decade, they're one of the best programs in it.
*


I added nothing for futures, I'm just commenting. And there are not enough teams that are consistent enough to be placed higher than Pearland in this formula. The three teams that I could really see above them that could be on this one are Garfield, Keller, and Red Mountain.

I'm not at all trying to squeeze Pearland into this top 25, trust me. So, what's more important: consistent ok scores, or spiked amazingness?

well, we always did decently, but our old coach got out of the program back in 2006 and left our coach with no one useful. I think that was the only time we didn't make states.

#22. Casa Grande High School (Petaluma, California)
#21. Bishop Alemany High School (Mission Hills, California)
#20. Acton-Boxborough Regional High School (Acton, Massachusetts)
#19. University High School (Fresno, California)

2000: Did not advance to state
2001: Did not advance to state
2002: Did not advance to state
2003: Did not advance to state
2004: 45,472 (9th)
2005: 42,992 (13th)
2006: Did not advance to state
2007: 42,511 (20th)
2008: 44,798 (14th)
2009: 45,947 (10th)

University didn't have a senior class until 2004, which coincidentally is the first year they advanced to state, and placed 9th at state. They have been a decent team at state the rest of the time. This should show you how many Cali teams are in the top 25...

Agreed. I think they would be if we could find other scores, and they are the only lolstate team on it.

#25. Pearland High School (Pearland, Texas)
#24. Los Angeles High School (Los Angeles, California)
#23. Oliver Wendell Holmes High School (San Antonio, Texas)
#22. Casa Grande High School (Petaluma, California)
#21. Bishop Alemany High School (Mission Hills, California)
#20. Acton-Boxborough Regional High School (Acton, Massachusetts)
#19. University High School (Fresno, California)
#18. Lubbock High School (Lubbock, Texas)

2000: 45,320 (16th)
2001: Did not advance to state
2002: 47,740 (1st; 4th at nationals)
2003: 45,582 (4th)
2004: 44,080 (3rd)
2005: 44,221 (4th)
2006: 43,872 (3rd)
2007: 44,105 (8th)
2008: 41,083 (19th)
2009: 42,800 (9th)

Lubbock was an elite program from 2002-2006. State of 2007 was a turning point; after coming in third, they dropped nearly 2k and ended 9th. After that Lubbock has not been the program it once was, dropping all the way to 19th in 2008.

As a break in the rankings, here's a list of the best LOL state schools:

5. Madison Academic (TN)
4. Cedar Rapids Jefferson (IA)
3. Collegiate Academy (PA)
2. Willoughby South (OH)
1. Acton-Boxborough Regional (MA)

BTW, Burke would be 19th if not for 2001, when they scored like 35k sad.gif

Massachusetts is certainly the best lolstate program but Collegiate has been doing better than Willoughby the past few years

Yetman. Yetman. I don't know exactly when he started, but you can tell he has had a profound effect on the program. Also, they are going to be renamed DemiDec High School. Because I said so.

#19. University High School (Fresno, California)
#18. Lubbock High School (Lubbock, Texas)
#17. Canyon del Oro High School (Oro Valley, Arizona)
#16. James E. Taylor High School (Katy, Texas)

2000: 52,470 (National Champions)
2001: 46,726 (1st; 2nd in nation)
2002: 46,002 (6th)
2003: 44,545 (8th)
2004: 41,715 (11th)
2005: 43,582 (5th)
2006: 39,143 (18th)
2007: 45,343 (3rd)
2008: 45,814 (6th)
2009: 46,670 (2nd)

Surprising to see Taylor so low, I expected them to still be the premier team in Texas (guesses as to who's ahead of them?). At any rate, still a good program after one really bad year in 2006. The dominant team in the nation in the 90s, which bled over until 2001. After 2001 with the retiring of their two coaches, Jackie Scott took over and made the program great again, although not where it was; however, the program is still an elite program in USAD and TAD. Also, the early favorite to win 2010.
