Spring Creek High School finished 11th overall in the Class 1-A North Carolina High School Athletic Association's final standings in the state Wachovia Cup competitions for the 2003-2004 school 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 25th year.

Durham School of the Arts reclaimed the 1-A cup, beating out perennial power Hendersonville.

In the 2-A classification, Charlotte Catholic secured its sixth straight Wachovia Cup. Greene Central finished 15th overall.

Monroe Weddington inched past East Chapel Hill in the 3-A classification to break the Wildcats' five-year hold on the Cup.

In the 4-A classification, Charlotte Providence clinched the top spot over Southeast Raleigh.

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 than 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, 15 for eighth. In the event of a tie, the schools receive an equal number of points based on 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:
