Pats Sixth In Chase For the Cup
Wells Fargo, along with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, recently announced the standings for fall sports in the Wells Fargo Cup competitions for the 2011-12 academic year.
With first-place league finishes in boys’ soccer, boys’ and girls’ cross country, girls’ tennis and girls’ golf, Pinecrest is ranked sixth in the top-10 statewide race for the Wells Fargo Cup in the NCHSAA 4-A division with a tally of 142.5.
The award recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications.
Green Hope, the defending 4-A champion, sits atop the division standings with a score of 195. Broughton’s 170 total has it in the second-place spot, while Myers Park (165), Ardrey Kelly (155) and T.C. Roberson (147.5) hold down places third through- fifth, respectively.
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.
Along with its five regular season conference championships in the fall, Pinecrest also earned a tie for second in girls’ volleyball and a tie for third place in football. As a result, the Patriots are leading the way in the Southeastern Conference Wells Fargo Conference Cup. After claiming conference crowns in football and volleyball, Scotland is a close second. Currently the third spot in the conference belongs to Richmond,
Complete SEC standings: Pinecrest 38, Scotland 34, Richmond 21.5, Purnell Swett 20, Lumberton 18, Hoke 15.5.
The Wells Fargo Conference Cup is a companion to the Wells Fargo Cup. It is based on how schools perform in conference competition only and does not factor in state playoff competition.
