The schools in the Nordic Division are organized into two geographic leagues. (See map below.)
High schools in Bend are in two different leagues.
- Summit and Bend High are in the Northern League.
- Mt. View is in the Southern League.
Why aren't high schools in Bend in the same League?
The high schools in Bend are home to more than 60% of the Nordic skiers in the state.
If the Bend schools were all in the same league, then that would leave only a few students in one end of the state in a different league.
Why are there two Leagues?
Having two leagues makes it easier for skiers in Ashland and Portland
to accommodate the travelling time for participating in League races.
