Manteo and First Flight win Wells Fargo Conference Cups

High school athletics managed to complete regular seasons and award conference championships, providing student-athletes across the state valuable opportunities to compete, grow and learn in an education-based setting. Schools excelling in many sports have won the Wells Fargo Conference Cup award for their respective conferences.

The Wells Fargo Conference Cup award, sponsored by Wells Fargo and the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, is a companion to the statewide Wells Fargo Cup. The Conference Cup is based on regular-season performances within conference play and is designed to recognize the best interscholastic athletic performances within each of the NCHSAA’s conferences.

The award has been sponsored by Wells Fargo and, prior to that, Wachovia since 1980. In most conferences, points are awarded based on participation and standings in conference play. Each conference determines its own method of awarding points. The companion award to the Conference Cup, the Wells Fargo State Cup, recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications, primarily based on performance in postseason play.
