Wells Fargo, along with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, today announced the standings for winter sports in the Wells Fargo Cup competitions for the 2011-12 academic year. The Wells Fargo Cup,

formerly known as the Wachovia Cup, is sponsored by Wells Fargo and the NCHSAA. The award recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications. The Cup program is in its 33rd year.
Defending champion Cary Green Hope sits atop the 4-A standings with Southern Pines Pinecrest in second place, while defending Cup champion Cardinal Gibbons paces the 3-A group of schools.  Carrboro holds the top position among 2-A schools, and the North Carolina School of Science and Math and Bishop McGuiness are one-two in the 1-A classification standings.    Green Hope, which finished third in women’s indoor track and claimed a top five finish in women’s swimming and diving to go with a quarterfinal spot in women's basketball, increased its tally to 322.5 points and maintain an advantage of 80 points over Southern Pines Pinecrest.  Pinecrest was the state runner-up in dual team wrestling and also placed seventh in 4-A women’s indoor track. Charlotte Myers Park is in third place with 237.5 points, while Charlotte Ardrey Kell (215) is fourth and Raleigh Broughton  (205) fifth. The Pioneers are currently tied for sixth with Providence.
Cardinal Gibbons enjoyed another great season this winter, capturing top spots in both 3-A men’s indoor track and men’s swimming. The Crusaders also earned a fourth-place finish in women’s indoor track to bring their total points to 517.5. Marvin Ridge has a total of 362.5 points for second place, paced by runner-up finishes in both men’s indoor track and women’s swimming and with two third-place slots in women’s indoor track and men’s swimming. Charlotte Catholic is in third with 322.5 points, followed by Chapel Hill (280) and Asheville (207.5). 
Carrboro has pulled ahead in the 2-A standings with a total of 322.5 points. Carrboro's top winter performances included two state championships in both men’s and women’s swimming. Shelby moved up to second with 275 points, getting help from a runner-up finish in men’s swimming, a sixth-place among 2-A schools in women's swimming, reaching the semifinals in men’s basketball. North Lincoln is third with 265 points, followed by Salisbury (262.5) and Cuthbertson (250). 
In the 1-A classification, the North Carolina School of Science and Math scored playoff points in five different sports. NCSSSM captured the top 1-A spot in men’s indoor track while placing in the top five in both men’s and women’s swimming and a sixth place among 1-A schools in women’s indoor track.  Those performances helped power NCSSM to maintain the top spot in 1-A with 410 points. Kernersville Bishop McGuinness is in second with 322.5 points. The Villains’ athletic teams had a state championship win in women’s basketball, a runner-up finish in men’s swimming and a third-place finish in women’s swimming at the 1-A level.
Lake Norman Charter, led by a first-place finish among 1-A schools in men’s swimming and second in women’s swimming, tallied 275 points for third overall in the standings. Hendersonville, winner of the most Cups with 13, is fourth with 247.5 points and West Wilkes is fifth at 210. Wells Fargo 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, Wells Fargo 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 Wells Fargo 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.
Wells Fargo Cup standings are announced three times each school year: once after the fall, again after the winter sports, and then 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.
