Record Book FAQs

How and why should the Cal-Hi Sports record book be credited?

The online CalHiSports.com State Record Book and all its original listings contained within were originally compiled by the late Nelson Tennis, founder of Cal-Hi Sports. All contents of the upcoming online book used in research and other online and print publications should be documented and credited as from Cal-Hi Sports or CalHiSports.com since no other California high school record book exists.

While we maintain a positive relationship with the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) and work diligently to properly promote the achievements of its member schools’ student-athletes, the CIF did not fund the creation of the state record book nor does it own the contents within it.

Record BookWe request that all media outlets refer to California state records “according to Cal-Hi Sports” or “according to CalHiSports.com.” News outlets that publish state record references without proper credit may be removed from free e-mail lists.

Reproduction of contents, either in whole or in part, is prohibited except by permission of the publishers. All rights reserved. Copyright © 2013 by Cal-Hi Sports.

Why do your record book categories look the way they do?

Each listing in the online CalHiSports.com record book begins with a total under a heading and is followed by the athlete’s name, school and year in which the total was established. Parentheses also are often seen at the end of each listing. This refers mainly to the number of games each athlete or team has played and can also include additional detail.

The first entry under the heading is the reported state record and the next best marks are listed as deep as possible and include many section or regional records.

For record listings, the style we have chosen to follow for listing schools is to give the school location first and then the school. Rio Americano High of Sacramento, for example, would be listed “Sacramento Rio Americano.”

For season records, overall totals are listed first and are then followed by regular season totals. A regular season total is used to show the difference of athletes who benefited by playing extra games in the playoffs. Regular season totals include non-league games, but do not include scrimmages or alumni games or games before the legal starting date for any particular sport.

Some of your record book categories are getting really long so will any of them be cut down in the future?

Yes, a few of the football passing, rushing and kicking categories will have to be reduced in length in any printed version of the record book because some of them are getting to be more than 100 in length. Generally speaking, though, we don’t like to cut names out from the book once they get in and it’s our policy to never completely cut out a name once it makes it in the record book.

What does the online record book look like?

Here’s a look at one football category updated after the conclusion of the 2012 season and another from boys basketball after the conclusion of the 2012-13 season. There are thousands of categories in the Cal-Hi Sports State Record Book just like these.
