Carrboro High Awarded Second Consecutive Wells Fargo Cup

Congratulations to our Carrboro High student-athletes and coaches, along with Athletic Director April Ross, on another outstanding year of Jaguar athletics - and a second consecutive Wells Fargo Cup! Their dedication and commitment to team goals are a source of inspiration for our entire community.

Wells Fargo, along with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA), recently announced the final standings in the Wells Fargo Cup competitions for the 2012-13 academic year. The Wells Fargo Cup is sponsored by Wells Fargo and the NCHSAA. The award recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications. The Cup program is in its 34th year.

Carrboro was the Cup winner among 2-A schools for the second straight year.

"We sincerely appreciate Wells Fargo's commitment to our overall program in recognizing our champions," said Davis Whitfield, NCHSAA commissioner. "These schools which win the Wells Fargo Cup do a tremendous job with their overall athletic programs, and we are grateful for Wells Fargo's desire to recognize their achievements."

Carrboro had an impressive spring to secure its second consecutive Cup, rolling up 225 playoff points in the spring for its 612.5 total, well ahead of runner-up Cuthbertson at 442.5 points. Carrboro won the 2-A women's outdoor track crown and was the runner up in men’s dual team tennis among its top spring finishes. Earlier in the year, Carrboro's women's cross country team won a state championship, while the football, men's soccer, and men's and women's swim teams finished as state runners up.

Wells Fargo Cup points are determined by a system based on performance in state championship events. All schools that finish in the top eight positions (plus ties) earn points. In the playoff events involving teams from more than one classification, Wells Fargo Cup points are awarded based on the school’s standing against other schools in its own classification. If fewer than eight schools from a classification compete in a sport, only those schools that are represented are eligible to receive the Cup points.

Points are awarded for all sports as follows: 50 for first, 45 for second, 40 for third, 35 for fourth, 30 for fifth, 25 for sixth, 20 for seventh and 15 for eighth. In the event of a tie, the schools receive an equal number of points based on the number of teams that tie and the number of teams that finish higher in the standings. Five points are awarded for each sanctioned sport in which a school competes.

“We are very happy for all of our student-athletes at Carrboro High,” said Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Coordinator of Athletics Scarlett Steinert. “They have worked very hard, stayed focused on their goals, balanced practices with academics and represented our community tremendously.”

Wells Fargo Cup standings are announced three times each school year: once after the fall and then the winter sports, and concluding with the winner after the spring sports season ends.

Chapel Hill High - Runner Up in N&O Cup

Congratulations to Chapel Hill High for finishing as runner up in the first News & Observer Cup All-Sports competition.

The N&O Cup ranks the teams without regard to NCHSAA, N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association, Christian School or independent affiliation or classification.

The program awards points to schools based on their finish in the final News & Observer rankings in nine different sports. Rankings from football, volleyball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, volleyball, baseball and softball are used to determine the winner.

The N&O also ranks boys and girls lacrosse teams, but did not include those in the Cup standings because a majority of area schools does not field lacrosse teams. The N&O ranks 20 teams in football, but awarded Cup points to only the top 15.

The Tigers strong showing, only ten points behind Green Hope High for the title, was helped by a No. 2 finish in girls basketball, a No. 4 finish in volleyball, No. 5 in girls soccer and No. 6 finishes in boys soccer and boys basketball.
