Riverside Norths girls run away from the competition and never look back!

Cerritos -The 2003 CIF-SS Track and Field championships are in the book.
The old saying, the more things change, the more they stay the same is more than a fitting description for this years event. J.W. Norths girls team was overpowering. Running in division 2 this year after the CIF realignment that restored school enrollment as the competition critera.
North scored 136 total team points, with the next closest school scoring only 37 points. Long Beach Poly continued its dominance in Division I with both girls and boys teams finishing first, followed closely by crosstown rival Long Beach Wilson.
As impressive as Norths dominance was, track and field fans are awaiting the battle between North, Poly and Wilson. These perenial power houses have combine for 8 of the last 9 State Championships, with every expectation that their dominance will continue in 2003.
