Wachovia Cup leaders

Wachovia Bank, a Wells Fargo company, along with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, today announced the standings for fall sports in the Wachovia Cup competitions for the 2009-10 academic year.

The Wachovia Cup award, sponsored by Wachovia and the NCHSAA, recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications. Wachovia has sponsored the conference awards program since 1980.

The Wachovia Conference Cup, formerly known as the Wachovia Trophy, is a companion to the Wachovia Cup. The Conference Cup is awarded to schools with the best overall interscholastic athletic performance in each individual athletic conference.

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

Here are the standings for the South Piedmont 3A: Concord is at the top of the conference after the fall season with league titles in women’s tennis and men’s cross country and second-place finishes in football and women’s golf. Hickory Ridge edged out Mount Pleasant for second place, tying for first in volleyball with Mount Pleasant, and also finishing first in men’s cross country. Concord 287.5, Hickory Ridge 235, Mount Pleasant 232.5, Northwest Cabarrus 225, A.L. Brown 222.5, Cox Mill 200, Jay Robinson 197.5, Central Cabarrus 95.
