CatchItKansas.com, a Website that covers high school sports throughout the State of Kansas, has ranked all of the athletic departments in the state by a points system awarded by appearances in the state tournament and individual accomplishments.
"We awarded points to the top eight team finishers at the state championships in every sport," CatchItKansas states in a story about the rankings. "Eight points went to the champion, seven to the runner-up, six to the third-place team and so on, down to one point for eighth place."
According to that scoring process, among the KCK schools, Washington was tops.
A runner-up finish in the 5A state boys basketball tournament and a second consecutive bowling state crown pushed the Wildcats to the top.
Coming in second place among local schools was Sumner Academy (11 points), who earned most of those points off a second consecutive 4A state championship in boys basketball.
Piper and Bonner checked in with 9 points a piece, while Turner scored 6 points.
Bishop Ward, Wyandotte, Schlagle and Harmon all failed in scoring one point.
