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.
