Fike in third place in Wachovia Cup competition

The N.C. High School Athletic Association released the fall sports standings for the Wachovia Cup competition today and Fike is tied for third in the 3-A classification.
The Golden Demons are knotted with Asheville T.C. Roberson with 147.5 points, trailing first-place Charlotte Catholic (227.5) and Asheville (180).
Fike finished second in the state in boys soccer and girls golf while the girls cross country program also competed as a team at the state meet.
Eastern Wayne of the 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference is No. 7 in the 3-A standings while Fike’s NEW 6 Conference foes Rocky Mount and Nash Central are eighth and 13th, respectively.
In the 2-A standings, Greene Central is tied for 11th with Brevard, Reidsville and Boonville Starmount — each with 80 points. The 2-A leader is Cardinal Gibbons with 222.5 points.
Kernersville Bishop McGuiness leads the 1-A standings and Charlotte Myers Park — the largest school in the state — heads the 4-A list.
The Wachovia Cup, in its 29th year, is sponsored by the NCHSAA and Wachovia Bank and is given to the schools that have the best overall athletic showing each year.
The NCHSAA Web site does a pretty good job of explaining the points system used in Wachovia Cup competition so I’ll them handle it.

“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 school’s 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 the Wachovia 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.”
