Northern California holds a seperate competition from California (South) because of distance issues. I has a medium amount of memebership compared to other states. There are 7 regions in Northern California all with about 30 teams per division. All regions hold both B and C competitions, except for the Bay Area who only holds C.
I don't know much about the History but here is what I do know.
Arden has won the single Nationals spot in B 6 times in the last 7 years, but has had some close calls from Winston Chuchill the past few years including a mere 2 point win in 2007. The Third Place School the past two years was Barrett. This makes the Top 3 teams in Northern California all from San Juan Unified School District
