Fall 2018-19 Wells Fargo Conference Cup Standings Announced

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has announced the
fall standings in the Wells Fargo Conference Cup competitions for the
2018 fall sports season.

The Wells Fargo Cup award, sponsored by Wells Fargo and the NCHSAA,
recognizes the schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic
athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive
classifications.

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. Wachovia, and now Wells
Fargo, has sponsored the conference awards program since 1980.

In most conferences, points are awarded based on participation and
standings in conference play. Each conference determines its own
method of awarding points. Conferences are listed alphabetically by
classification.
