SBLive All-Sports Awards update: Here's where the MHSAA programs stand after fall 2021 season

Madison Central leads the 6A race after winning state titles in football and both girls and boys swimming.

Now that we've crowned MHSAA state champions in volleyball, swimming, cross country and football, it's time to take a look at where each classification stands in the 2021-22 SBLive All-Sports Awards standings.

At the conclusion of every high school athletic year - in late June - SBLive’s Tyler Cleveland will crunch the numbers to award Mississippi high school athletic programs who achieve the highest level of success in the most sports.

The scoring system has developed over the years and is based on how each team finishes in each sport. For example, a team receives 30 points for winning a state championship in any respective sport. If the sport relies on a playoff bracket to determine a champion, the runner-up receives 25 points and the teams who were defeated in the semifinal round receive 20 (and so on). Every team that reaches the playoffs, regardless of the team’s record, scores points for their school.

In a sport determined by indirect competition (like powerlifting or cross country), the first-place team receives 30 points, second place gets 25 (and so on), with the top eight teams receiving points.

Here's a look at the SBLive All-Sports Awards standings after the fall 2021 season:
