The North Carolina High School Athletic Association, in conjunction with Wells Fargo, released the final standings in the 37th annual Wells Fargo Cup competitions for the 2015-16 academic year. The award recognizes the high schools that achieve the best overall interscholastic athletic performance within each of the state’s four competitive classifications.
The Weddington Warriors were named the 3A Champions. The 3A race was one of the closest finishes in the Cup’s history as Weddington edged past Marvin Ridge by 2.5 points. The Warriors held on for the victory by sweeping both Men’s and Women’s Soccer State Championships as well as State Titles in Men’s Cross Country and Men’s Indoor Track. They also had third place finishes in Women’s Swimming & Diving, Men’s Outdoor Track and Women’s Cross Country to help bolster their total. Marvin Ridge made an excellent push toward the Warriors in the spring season as the Mavericks were the top 3A points receiver in four sports. Marvin Ridge won the Men’s Dual Team Tennis title as well as Baseball and the 1A/2A/3A Men’s Lacrosse State Championship. They were the top 3A finisher in Women’s Lacrosse as well.
