     Mount Tabor leads the 4-A classification, while two-time winners East
 Chapel Hill and Charlotte Catholic pace the 3-A and 2-A classifications,
 respectively.  Hendersonville, which has won three consecutive Cup titles, is
 atop the 1-A classification.
     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 was established in 1979.
     In the 4-A classification, Mount Tabor moved from second place after the
 fall sports season into the lead on the strength of state championships in
 wrestling and men's and women's indoor track.  Mount Tabor, which has 335
 points, also reached the quarterfinals in men's basketball.  Raleigh Leesville
 Road, a past Cup winner, is second with 322.5 points after earning runner-up
 finishes in women's swimming and men's basketball, plus a third-place finish
 in men's indoor track and an eighth-place finish in men's swimming.  Charlotte
 Providence, the women's swimming champion, is third with 255, followed by
 men's basketball champion Winston-Salem R.J. Reynolds with 245 and Chapel
 Hill, the fall points leader, with 237.5.
     East Chapel Hill won state championships in men's and women's swimming and
 held onto first place in the 3-A classification with 375 points.  Jamestown
 Ragsdale, the state champion in men's indoor track and runner-up in men's
 swimming, is second with 360 points.  Asheville, which finished fourth in
 men's swimming among 3-A teams and tied for fourth in men's indoor track, is
 third with 262.5 points, followed by Skyland T.C. Roberson, the women's
 basketball runner-up, with 225 points, and Hickory St. Stephens, the runner-up
 in wrestling and women's swimming, with 207.5 points.
     Charlotte Catholic had the top teams in the 2-A classification in men's
 and women's swimming and remained in first place overall with 352.5 points.
 North Rowan, which finished first among 2-A schools in men's and women's
 indoor track, is second with 215 points.  North Henderson, which reached the
 semifinals in wrestling and men's basketball, is third with 192.5 points,
 followed by Statesville, which placed second among 2-A teams in women's
 swimming and seventh in men's swimming, with 192.5.  Weddington, which
 finished seventh among 2-A teams in women's swimming and fourth in men's
 swimming, is fifth with 177.5 points.
     Hendersonville built on its lead in the 1-A classification, finishing
 first among 1-A schools in women's indoor track, reaching the semifinals in
 women's basketball and finishing in a tie for second in wrestling.
 Hendersonville has 378.75 points.  Northside, the men's basketball runner-up,
 is second with 235 points.  Graham, which finished second among 1-A teams in
 men's swimming, is third with 220 points, followed by South Davidson, the 1-A
 wrestling champion, with 198 points, and Burlington Cummings, the 1-A men's
 basketball champion and runner-up among women's indoor track teams, with 172.5
 points.
     All schools finishing in the top eight positions (plus ties) in a state
 championship event receive Wachovia Cup points.  In events such as men's
 soccer, where 4-A, 3-A, 2-A and 1-A schools do not compete in separate
 tournaments, Wachovia Cup points are awarded based on a school's standing in
 its own classification.  If there are fewer than eight schools from a
 classification in the event, only those schools that are represented are
 eligible to receive Wachovia Cup points.
     Points are awarded as follows: 50 for first place, 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,
 following the fall and winter sports seasons and concluding with the winners
 after the spring sports season in June.  The engraved silver cups are
 presented during NCHSAA Day activities each fall at the University of North
 Carolina at Chapel Hill.
