Three Johnston County high schools brought home Wells Fargo Conference Cups for the 2014-15 school year. Clayton, Corinth Holders and Princeton all won their respective conferences.
The Wells Fargo Conference Cup is a companion to the Wells Fargo Cup and recognizes schools with the best overall interscholastic athletic performances within individual conferences.
In most conferences, points are awarded based on participation and standings in conference play. Each conference determines its own method of awarding points.
