Wells Fargo, along with the North Carolina High School Athletic Association, today announced the final standings in the Wells Fargo Conference Cup competitions for the 2013-2014 sports year.

The Wells Fargo Cup award, sponsored by Wells Fargo 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 Wells Fargo Conference Cup is a companion to the Wells Fargo Cup and recognizes schools with the best overall interscholastic athletic performances within individual conferences. Wachovia and now Wells Fargo has sponsored the conference awards program 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. Conferences are listed alphabetically by classification.

Thomas Jefferson finished just behind Community School of Davidson for a second-place finish in the Southern Piedmont 1A Conference (SPC).

A runner-up finish in men's outdoor track and field led by distance runner Hayden Alexander and eventual High Jump state champion Mason Fenner allowed the Gryphons to edge Lincoln Charter by two points.

Final SPC standings: Community School of Davidson 200, Thomas Jefferson 182, Lincoln Charter 180, Highland Tech 166, Pine Lake 165, Cherryville 156, Bessemer City 132.
