The nation’s most-populous state sends 100-plus athletes more than 3,000 miles to their respective Heps institutions. If the average student-athlete makes two round trips per school year, that comes to more than 1.2 million sky miles from just these folks. Without question, some airline should come to and lavish us with big money for advertising space. Come on, ad-placement folks at the airlines, do your jobs. Call me.

Ivy Leaguers from California asserted themselves at Outdoor Heps in 2010. Princeton’s Conor McCullough (Canoga Park) broke a long-standing championship record in the hammer throw before winning the world juniors in Canada over the summer. Yale’s Kate Grace (Santa Monica) won yet another 800-meter crown and Californians took the women’s distance runs, the 5k going to Brown’s Ariel Wright (Oakland) and Princeton’s Sarah Cummings (Newport Beach). Cummings comes from the most prolific producer of Hepsters in the nation — Corona del Mar High School.

Getting to know California a bit more:

Los Angeles County — nearly twice the size of America’s second-largest county — has more people than 42 U.S. states. It had about four million people in 1950 before ripping the heart out of Brooklyn by stealing its beloved Dodgers. Now it has more than 10 million residents (yet still no NFL team). Searching through the state symbols, you will find that California does not just have an official gold rush ghost town (Bodie), but also an official silver rush ghost town (Calico). Where is the official bronze rush ghost town?
