2020-21 MaxPreps Cup winter state-by-state leaders
Carmel (Ind.), North Allegheny (Wexford, Pa.) and Marist (Atlanta) head the list of MaxPreps Cup leaders by state, but due to COVID, it is an incomplete list this year.

A total of 12 states, along with the District of Columbia, had no high school sports at all this year or had a limited version of regular season play, abbreviated postseason play and no state finals during the fall and winter seasons. Those states include California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Oregon and Washington. Some of those states have begun competition in the spring and may hold state competition by the end of the school year.

MaxPrep lists the top five teams from each of the other 38 states that held state championships, according to the MaxPreps Cup formula.

The MaxPreps Cup is an effort to rank the top high school athletic programs in the country. Points are awarded for state championships, state runner-up finishes and national rankings. Points are awarded based on popularity of sport, based on participation numbers, the size of the state, the size of schools in a playoff division and the number of teams participating in that playoff division.

Video: 10 extreme high schools seen from Google Earth
These campuses are big and small and across the corners of the U.S.

The view from Google Earth allows a different perspective - a bird's eye look. It allows you to search some of the most extreme locations in the world.

MaxPreps has already taken a look at 10 unique high schools in the U.S., as well as schools of players in the Michael Jordan documentary "The Last Dance," and 10 high school football stadiums named after NFL players.

The latest installment in the series dives into some of the extreme schools in the United States.

School at lowest elevation
West Shores Academy (Salton City, Calif.): In the 1960s, Salton City was a tourist attraction capable of housing 40,000 residents on 12,000 lots, according to Wikipedia. Most of those lots are now empty and the town has a population of about 4,000. It is located 125 feet below sea level.
School at highest elevation
Lake County (Leadville, Colo.): Believed to be the school at the highest elevation in the United States at 9,983 feet above sea level.
Westernmost school that plays football
Gold Beach (Ore.): With its football field bordering the beach and the Pacific Ocean, Gold Beach is the westernmost school in the contiguous United States that plays football.
Northernmost school in United States
Barrow (Alaska): At 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Barrow is the northernmost school in the United States. It gets approximately 20 hours of daylight the spring/summer months. It is located 5,642 miles from the southernmost school in the contiguous United States, Key West.
Southernmost school in contiguous United States
Key West (Fla.):
Located at the tip of the Florida Keys, Key West plays in a league with schools from Miami. Key West is actually closer to Havana, Cuba (106 miles) than it is to its league opponents (160 miles).
Southernmost school in 50 states
Ka'u (Pahala, Hawaii):
Located toward the southern end of the Big Island in Hawaii, Ka'u is about 50 miles south of Key West, the southernmost school in the contiguous United States.
School with largest enrollment
Brooklyn Tech (Brooklyn, N.Y.):
At nine stories tall, Brooklyn Tech houses the largest enrollment of any school in the nation with over 8,000 students. The athletic facilities are located several miles away with a gymnasium and football field.
Smallest School that plays Football
Banner County (Harrisburg, Neb.):
A school that plays 6-man football, Banner County is believed to be the smallest school in the nation that fields a football team. According to the Nebraska School Activities Association, Banner County has nine boys enrolled in the school.
Easternmost school
Shead Memorial (Eastport, Maine):
Located on an island in eastern Maine, Shead Memorial is just a few miles from the eastern border of the United States and Canada. Shead fields basketball, soccer and baseball teams.
Westernmost school
Unalaska (Alaska):
Located on the Aleutian Islands, Unalaska is close to the international dateline. It does not field a football team, but it does field basketball, soccer and volleyball teams. Unalaska is 5,737 miles, by land, from the easternmost school, Shead Memorial.

Sometimes to really appreciate something, you need to change your perspective.

Renowned French novelist Marcel Proust once said, "the real voyage of discovery comes not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes."

MaxPreps provides "new eyes" to help discover 10 of the coolest high school campuses in the nation via Google Earth. Time to begin your real voyage of discovery.

Here is a snapshot of the 10 schools featured in the video:

Allen (Texas): The school already has a multi-million dollar football stadium, but it also has an impressive array of baseball and softball fields and an extra football field.
Bentonville (Ark.): A two-time MaxPreps Cup champion, Bentonville has a campus that stretches almost 10 city blocks.
Stevenson (Pebble Beach, Calif.): It's easy to see why Stevenson ranks as one of the top golf programs in the state. It's near the famed Pebble Beach golf course.
Westminster (Atlanta, Ga.): Winner of nearly 300 state championships, Westminster sits in a picturesque setting where the athletic fields are carved out of a heavily wooded area in Atlanta.
Parkland (Allentown, Pa.): From outer space, the Parkland campus looks like something from another world. The campus has a unique Millennium Falcon shape.
Punahou (Honolulu, Hawaii): The Buff 'N Blue have won over 500 state championships and are located just a few miles from Waikiki Beach.
Bolles (Jacksonville, Fla.): The Bulldogs have one of the top swimming programs in the nation, as evidenced by the Olympic-size pool that's just beyond the school's front doors.
Baylor (Chattanooga, Tenn.): Built along the Tennessee River, Baylor School overlooks the water with the athletic fields in among the woods lining the waterway.
Valley Christian (San Jose, Calif.): Sitting atop a ridge in South San Jose, Valley Christian stretches the length of the rise with the football field at one end and the baseball field at the other.
IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.): Just a short distance from the Gulf of Mexico, IMG Academy hosts 16 soccer fields, a dozen tennis courts, three football fields and nine baseball fields, not to mention a small golf course and an Olympic-size pool.

Best high school volleyball player in all 50 states - OFFICIAL
Best high school volleyball player in all 50 states
While football might have dominated the national headlines in terms of moving seasons due to the coronavirus, high school volleyball also has been affected across the country. We've spotlighted the best high school volleyball player in each state, regardless of whether the schedule is being played as regularly planned or an alternate calendar is in place.

From All-Americans to up-and-comers, players were identified based on last year's statistical data provided to MaxPreps, as well as local, state or national honors from multiple media outlets.

You could make the case that some, if not all, states could list out multiple players deserving of the honor. However, we've attempted to narrow it down to just one player per state set to serve, bump or spike it up this year.
