Wachovia, a Wells Fargo company, and the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Friday announced the final standings in the Wachovia Cup competitions for the 2010-11 academic year with the spring sports seasons completed.

The Wachovia Cup award, sponsored by Wachovia and the NCHSAA, recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performances within each of the state’s four competitive classifications. The Wachovia Cup program has concluded its 32nd year.
All four of the champions successfully defended the Wachovia Cups each of them won a year ago. Cary Green Hope maintained its lead after winter sports to capture the Cup in the final 4-A standings for the second consecutive year. Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons took the top spot in the 3-A classification with a great all around performance. Salisbury was the Cup winner among 2-A schools for the second year in a row while Kernersville Bishop McGuinness captured first place in 1-A for the fourth time in the last five years.
"We sincerely appreciate Wachovia's commitment to our overall program in recognizing our champions for over 30 years," said Davis Whitfield, NCHSAA commissioner. "These schools who win the Wachovia Cup do a tremendous job with their overall athletic programs, and we are grateful for Wachovia's desire to recognize their achievements
 In the 4-A classification, Green Hope finished first with 427.5 points to hold off a surging Charlotte Myers Park in second with 390.5. Green Hope preserved its title by placing fifth in men's golf and fifth among 4-A women's lacrosse teams. Myers Park had a second-place finish in men's golf to go with a runner-up finish in women's lacrosse and getting to the state quarterfinals in men's dual team tennis.
Raleigh Wakefield wound up in third, primarily with a couple of great performances in track, winning the women's outdoor track and field crown and taking third in the men's meet, to go with a fourth-place finish in men's golf.
Cardinal Gibbons held on to the top spot in the 3-A standings with playoff points in an impressive five different spring sports, including winning both the men's dual team tennis championship and taking top honors among 3-A women's lacrosse teams, while finishing second in both women's outdoor track and field and women's soccer. Gibbons recorded a whopping 715 points, ahead of runner-up Charlotte Catholic at 605.
Catholic's spring performances included a women's soccer title and second place among 3-A teams in both women's lacrosse and men's dual team tennis.
Waxhaw Marvin Ridge was third with 487.5 points, just a half point ahead of fourth-place Chapel Hill.
Salisbury had an impressive spring to secure its sixth Cup all time. Salisbury recorded 647.5 points, including winning the men's golf title, taking second in women's outdoor track and field and fifth in men's outdoor track and field. Carrboro, with a strong spring, was second with 615 points, including playoff points in six spring sports. Among the Jaguar team highlights were a title in women's outdoor track and field, a runner-up finish in women's soccer, and a top finish among 2-A schools in women's lacrosse. 
East Lincoln, which advanced to the regional finals in baseball and placed fourth in the men's track and field state meet, was third with 345 points and Cuthbertson fourth at 320.
In the 1-A classification, Bishop McGuinness collected playoff points for positions in men’s golf, women’s outdoor track, women’s soccer, and both women's and men's lacrosse en route to a total of 630 points, ahead of Durham's North Carolina School of Science and Math at 467.5. NCSSM was second in the state 1-A men's outdoor track and field championships to go with a runner-up spot in men's dual team tennis and  getting to the state semifinals in women's soccer.
Hendersonville, the school that has recorded the most Wachovia Cups of any NCHSAA school with 13, finished third in the 1-A standings with 422.5 points, and North Rowan was fourth at 322.5.
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 then the 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.
