NCHSAA press release

CHAPEL HILL – The North Carolina High School Athletic Association, in conjunction with Wells Fargo, released the final standings in the 41st annual Wells Fargo Cup competitions for the 2019-2020 academic year. The award recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications. The 2019-2020 season was cut short, due to COVID-19, and therefore, no spring sports points were awarded in this year’s competition.

This year Cardinal Gibbons was the only back-to-back winners of the cup, claiming the 4A State Cup for the second year in a row. Weddington outpaced Marvin Ridge for the 3A Classification. In the 2A Classification, Carrboro reclaimed the cup after Croatan slipped by them a season ago. In the 1A Classification, the Lincoln Charter earned the school’s second State Cup win all-time.

4A State Cup: Cardinal Gibbons takes the top spot in the 4A ranks edging Green Hope by a 40-point margin. The Crusaders did not capture a State Championship as a team this year, however, they finished second in Dual Team Wrestling and Men’s Cross Country while making the school’s first appearance in an NCHSAA Football State Championship Game where they fell to Vance in the 4A Championship game.

ABOUT THE WELLS FARGO CUP

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.
