Wells Fargo, along with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, today announced the standings for fall sports in the Wells Fargo Cup competitions for the 2013-14 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 35th year.

Defending champion Green Hope sits atop the 4A standings, while defending Cup champion Cardinal Gibbons paces the 3A class. Lake Norman Charter, who won the 1A Cup last year but moved up a classification in realignment, is in first place in 2A with defending 2A champ Carrboro in second. Elkin is in first place in the 1A classification standings, ahead of perennial power Kernersville Bishop McGuinness.

Green Hope, which claimed the 4A women’s cross country crown while also scoring playoff points in four other sports, tallied a total of 230 to open up a good lead over second-place Winston-Salem Mount Tabor. Mount Tabor was second in men’s cross country, fifth in women’s and also in the final four in volleyball for a total of 147.5.

Broughton, which captured the state crown in men’s cross country, is in third place with 132.5 points, while Asheville T.C. Roberson (130) is tied for fourth with Charlotte Ardrey Kell.

Cardinal Gibbons had another terrific fall season in 3A with playoff points in five different sports, including state titles in volleyball, women’s dual team tennis and men’s cross country. The Crusaders earned a total of 265 points, ahead of second-place Weddington’s 205.

Weddington’s fall total, which represents playoff points in five sports, included a state championship in men’s cross country and runner-up finish to Gibbons in women’s dual team tennis.

Waxhaw Marvin Ridge is in third with 172.5 points, followed by Chapel Hill (155) and Northern Guilford (137.5).

Lake Norman Charter rolled up 202.5 points to take the top spot over defending champ Carrboro at 190. Lake Norman Charter finished in the top four in the 2A classification in four different sports, including volleyball, women’s dual team tennis, men’s cross country and men’s soccer.

Carrboro’s fall performance included a pair of state semifinal appearances in men’s soccer and women’s dual team tennis, and a pair of third-place finishes in the cross country championships.

Perennial contender Salisbury is third with 185 points, followed by North Carolina School of Science and Math (177.5), which won the 2A men’s cross country title. Hendersonville, which captured top honors in volleyball, and Shelby, the 2AA football champion, are tied for fifth at 147.5.

In the 1A classification, Elkin leads the way after finishing as the top 1A team in women’s golf and also scoring points in both cross country events and men’s soccer for its 172.5 total.

Bishop McGuinness is just five points back of Elkin at 167.5. The Villains’ fall championship performances included sweeping both cross country titles and finishing in the top four in women’s tennis.

Misenheimer Gray Stone Day is third at 162.5, followed by Raleigh Charter (147.5) and then Community School of Davidson at 117.5.

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 Wells Fargo 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.

Wells Fargo Cup standings are announced three times each school year: once after the fall, again after the winter sports, and then concluding with the winner after the spring sports season ends in June. The engraved silver cups are presented during NCHSAA Day activities at UNC-Chapel Hill each fall.
