Carrboro, Chapel Hill, East all win conference cups
The Wells Fargo Conference Cup was so close this year in some area conferences that the outcome of one game would have made the difference in the annual all-sports competition.
Chapel Hill beat Cardinal Gibbons 116.5-110.5 in the Big Eight 3A in showdown between two of the state’s top programs.
East Chapel Hill defeated second-place Durham Jordan 92.5-88 in the Piedmont Athletic 4A, helped by the Wildcats' finishing ahead of Jordan in baseball, lacrosse and softball this spring.
Never miss a local story.
Carrboro, the 2013 statewide Wells Fargo Cup winner, had the biggest margin of victory in area conference's all-sports competition. The Jaguars amassed 94 points in the Mid-State 2A Conference cup race, well ahead of Siler City Jordan-Matthews, which had 70 points.
