The N.C. High School Athletic Association has announced the Wells Fargo state and conference cup standings following the fall sports season.

The state cup standings are calculated based on postseason finish in each of the NCHSAA’s four classifications. Each conference sets its own calculation for points in conference cup standings, which are based on conference finish.

Green Hope, which is aiming for its fifth straight 4A Wells Fargo state cup, leads once again after a fall where the boys soccer team was a state semifinalist and the girls cross country team was a state champion.

The Falcons have 230 points, ahead of Winston-Salem’s Mount Tabor (147.5). Panther Creek is tied for 13th with 85 points.

Cardinal Gibbons, which has won eight straight state cups (four in 3A, four in 2A), leads the 3A state cup standings with 265 points. Runner-up Waxhaw Weddington has 205 points. The Crusaders won the girls tennis title, girls cross country title and volleyball title.

In conference cup races, Green Hope has a slim lead in the Southwest Wake Athletic Conference over Apex and Panther Creek.

Cardinal Gibbons leads the Big Eight Conference cup standings with only Chapel Hill within 10 points.
