The latest news and analysis on high-school sports around the Seattle area

Which way would you crown a champion?

Chew on this one folks. I’m throwing it on the burner in this week’s Sideline Smitty column:

In college rowing, the women’s NCAA championship is based on points earned in three events at the national regatta — varsity eight, second-varsity eight and varsity four with coxswain. Men’s rowing isn’t an NCAA sport and the national champion is considered to be the school that wins the varsity-eight title.

If rowing ever became a widespread high-school sport in Washington, which way of crowing a state champion would you prefer? The way that rewards the overall rowing program or gives the title to the school with the fastest varsity boat?

I like the way the men do it. The championship goes to the school with the fastest varsity boat, not the most depth in its program.
