East Burke, Hickory Finish in Top 10 of Wells Fargo Cup

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association, in conjunction with Wells Fargo, is proud to release the final standings in the 45th annual Wells Fargo Cup competitions for the 2023-2024 academic year. The award recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications.

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. 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. Five points are awarded for each sanctioned sport in which a school makes the postseason.
