The system used to determine a school's final score in the competition awards points for championships won - both CAL and NJSIAA - with bonuses for the number of different sports in which they were won.
Under this system, which rewards a sports program's versatility, a school that wins two championships - one each in two different sports - will get a higher score than if it won two championships in the same sport.
Points are only awarded for sports in which the CAL determines a champion.
