From most league titles to consecutive section titles and most undefeated seasons, updated all-time state leaders from the Cal-Hi Sports record book in numerous postseason team categories shows Bakersfield with almost as many top totals as De La Salle of Concord.

With 20 straight league championships, 20 straight CIF North Coast Section crowns and three straight CIF Open Division state bowl titles, there’s no secret that the legendary De La Salle of Concord football program owns a truckload of state records. But the Spartans are not alone as a storied program in the Golden State. Bakersfield still tops all schools for most section titles, most CIF state titles and most undefeated seasons.

Here is an updated look at the Cal-Hi Sports state football postseason team success categories (prior to the start of 2012 season):
