socal!
Troy pretty much elevates the entire region, with 8 national championships
North Hollywood is really good too
it's just that Troy is so good they always get edged out
their teams pretty much hate each other
Hate... I wouldn't go that far. Maybe really intense rivalry... then again sort of intense rivalry... okay no deep rivalry, other than trying to keep our title.
We're too lazy to hold real rivalries.

If "competitive" is defined as having most rivalry between schools at State, Idaho could qualify. There are some schools who always do well at State and HATE each other. One of them usually won, and the other was obsessed about beating them. Also, since my school won last year, the former champion hates us too.

Idahoans, you know what I'm talking about.
^ This. It wasn't that bad in the C division, Mainly because my school didnt really have that much competition. But in B, its a completely different story. Congrats on winning last year though! That should be considered an accomplishment! Usually it's really hard to beat them, and sure enough, whenever someone does defeat them, it's like a declaration of war. It gets nasty.....

All of the other Indiana schools scared me to death. I was sitting there screaming,"HOWWWW?!?!?" SO um, yeah but I am sure Indiana isn't the most competitive.

Everyone thinks their own state is the most competitive...

Not true. I live in AL. I think that AL ranks somewhere around 51st in most competitive. (Yes, I know that there are only 48 states in SO. No, I did not make a mistake.)

Texas is kind of competitive. I guess.
foreverphysics didn't your team get second at state so how can you say that it isn't competitive?
