It’s not really close this time as Monarchs repeat as state’s No. 1 overall sports school. They also collect top honor for the fifth time in school history. First-ever CIF state title in boys track followed by top five finish in boys golf two days later turned race into a rout.
Serra of Gardena led with three CIF state titles, but this time Mater Dei’s overall excellence beats the Cavaliers and every other school in California. It’s the Monarchs’ fourth State School of the Year honor.
