CHAPEL HILL -- Charles B. Aycock (Class 3-A), Greene Central (Class 2-A) and Rosewood (Class 1-A) were among the top 14 in their respective classifications in the fall sports, according to the Wachovia Cup standings released by the N.C. High School Athletic Association.

The Wachovia Cup award, sponsored by Wachovia Bank 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 26th year.

Aycock is 11th in 3-A with 87.5 points, while Greene Central is 12th with seven other 2-A schools with 75. In the 1-A ranks, Rosewood is 14th with 75 points.

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.

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.
