Prep Notebook: Carrboro No. 1 among N.C. 2-A programs

Jun. 18, 2013 @ 07:35 PM

Carrboro High School’s overall sports excellence in the recently completed school year has earned it the Wells Fargo Cup for the second year in a row.

The Cup is awarded in conjunction with the N.C. High School Athletic Association to the teams with the best overall athletic performances in the state in each of four attendance classifications.

The Jaguars, in only their sixth year of existence, used an impressive spring performance to bolster its already strong showings in the fall and winter sports seasons to secure its second straight 2-A Cup.

Carrboro finished with 612.5 points for the year, including 225 points in the spring season, demolishing runner-up Waxhaw Cuthbertson which finished with 442.5 points.

Carrboro won the 2-A girls’ outdoor track crown and was the runner-up in boys’ dual team tennis this spring. In the fall, the Jaguars finished second in the state in football and men’s soccer.

In the winter season, Carrboro finished second in the state in both boys’ and girls’ swimming

Two other Cup champions repeated this season including Cary Green Hope in 4-A and Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons in 3-A.

In 1-A, last year’ Cup champion, the N.C. School of Science and Mathematics, was dethroned by Lake Norman Charter — the Unicorns finished fourth.

Other top area finishers included Chapel Hill (4th, 3-A), Hillsborough Orange (T-14th, 3-A), Hillsborough Cedar Ridge (4th, 2-A) and East Chapel Hill (7th, 4-A).

Wells Fargo Cup points are based on performance in state championships. All schools that finish in the top eight (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.

Points are awarded 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.
