Final Wachovia Cup Standings

Wachovia Bank, N.A., along with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, has announced the final standings for the Wachovia Cup competitions for the 2004-2005 academic year.

The Wachovia Cup award, sponsored by Wachovia Bank, N.A., and the NCHSAA, recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications. The Wachovia Cup program is in its 26th year.

Durham School of the Arts secured its second consecutive Cup in the 1-A classification. In the 2-A classification, Charlotte Catholic won its seventh straight Wachovia Cup. Skyland T.C. Roberson inched past East Chapel Hill to place first in the 3-A classification, while Charlotte Providence paced the 4-A classification, successfully defending its Wachovia title.

In the 1-A classification, Durham School of the Arts used a state championship in women’s track, a fourth place finish in men’s track and ties for sixth in women’s soccer and men’s tennis to put it on top for the year with 407.5 points. Surry Central took the runner-up position after finishing fifth among 1-A men’s track teams and tying for sixth in women’s track to compile 362.5 points. Winning state championships in softball and men’s golf allowed East Surry to lock in third place with 302.5 points.

Defending champion Charlotte Catholic clinched the top spot in the 2-A classification with 555 points, resulting from a first-place finish in men’s tennis and two runner-up finishes in women’s soccer and men’s golf. West Henderson, with 405 points, remained in second place for the year due to placing fifth in men’s golf, tying for third in women’s track and sharing fifth place in baseball. With 362.5 points, Western Guilford moved into the third-place position, securing a state title in women’s soccer, a tie for third in women’s track, a fourth-place finish in men’s track and tying for fifth in baseball.

In the 3-A classification, T.C. Roberson beat out the East Chapel Hill Wildcats to win with 477.5 points. Sharing the state title in men’s track, tying for third in women’s soccer, fifth in baseball and fifth in women’s track, allowed Roberson to win the Cup. East Chapel Hill, with 462.5 points, clinched a state championship in men’s tennis and tied for third in women’s soccer to land in second place overall. Asheville took third place, finishing third in men’s track to accumulate 375 points.

After a close race all year, Charlotte Providence captured the 4-A classification title with 480 points, leaving Mount Tabor in second place with 425 points. Providence tied for third in men’s tennis and fifth in men’s baseball, as well as finishing fourth among 4-A women’s track teams. Mount Tabor finished second in women’s soccer and men’s track and fourth in men’s golf. Raleigh Broughton, with 365 points, brought home state crowns in men’s tennis and women’s soccer to finish in third place overall.

Wachovia 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, Wachovia 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 Wachovia 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.

Wachovia Cup standings are announced three times each school year: once after the fall and winter sports, and 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.
