The results are in...and once again Carrboro High has the top 2-A athletic program in the state.
The Jaguars had an impressive spring, securing the school's fourth consecutive Wells Fargo Cup, rolling up 305 points in the spring for its 677.5 total, well ahead of runner-up Lake Norman Charter at 382.5 points. Carrboro High, with playoff points in six different sports, won both the 2-A men’s dual team tennis title and the women’s soccer state crown, was second in women’s outdoor track and then picked up major points as the top 2-A finisher in women’s lacrosse.
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 then 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.
