Long Beach Poly, which won the boys' state track and field championship and was co-winner of the girls' state title, is the first school to have won three state championships in a single school year.

The Jackrabbits, who also won the boys' cross-country title, topped the record of two state championships set by Stockton High in basketball and swimming in 1921-22. That mark was tied 13 times.

Long Beach Poly has won seven boys' and five girls' state track championships and has won a record-tying 16 state titles overall.

Berkeley High has also won 16 state championships.
