Wachovia Bank, N.A., along with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, today announced the final standings for the Wachovia Cup competitions for the 2004-2005 academic year.

The Wachovia Cup award, sponsored by Wachovia Bank, N.A., and the NCHSAA, recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state's four competitive classifications. The Wachovia Cup program is in its 26th year.

Durham School of the Arts secured its second consecutive Cup in the 1-A classification. In the 2-A classification, Charlotte Catholic won its seventh straight Wachovia Cup. Skyland T.C. Roberson inched past East Chapel Hill to place first in the 3-A classification, while Charlotte Providence paced the 4-A classification, successfully defending its Wachovia title.

In the 1-A classification, Durham School of the Arts used a state championship in women¹s track, a fourth place finish in men¹s track and ties for sixth in women¹s soccer and men¹s tennis to put it on top for the year with 407.5 points. Surry Central took the runner-up position after finishing fifth among 1-A men¹s track teams and tying for sixth in women¹s track to compile 362.5 points. Winning state championships in softball and men¹s golf allowed East Surry to lock in third place with 302.5 points.

Defending champion Charlotte Catholic clinched the top spot in the 2-A classification with 555 points, resulting from a first-place finish in men¹s tennis and two runner-up finishes in women¹s soccer and men¹s golf. West Henderson, with 405 points, remained in second place for the year due to placing fifth in men¹s golf, tying for third in women¹s track and sharing fifth place in baseball. With 362.5 points, Western Guilford moved into the third-place position, securing a state title in women¹s soccer, a tie for third in women¹s track, a fourth-place finish in men¹s track and tying for fifth in baseball.

In the 3-A classification, T.C. Roberson beat out the East Chapel Hill Wildcats to win with 477.5 points. Sharing the state title in men¹s track, tying for third in women¹s soccer, fifth in baseball and fifth in women¹s track, allowed Roberson to win the Cup. East Chapel Hill, with 462.5 points, clinched a state championship in men¹s tennis and tied for third in women¹s soccer to land in second place overall. Asheville took third place, finishing third in men¹s track to accumulate 375 points.

After a close race all year, Charlotte Providence captured the 4-A classification title with 480 points, leaving Mount Tabor in second place with 425 points. Providence tied for third in men¹s tennis and fifth in men¹s baseball, as well as finishing fourth among 4-A women¹s track teams. Mount Tabor finished second in women¹s soccer and men¹s track and fourth in men¹s golf. Raleigh Broughton, with 365 points, brought home state crowns in men¹s tennis and women¹s soccer to finish in third place overall.

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 school¹s 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 theWachovia 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 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.
