In a year like none before, 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.
There were numerous schools that excelled across many sports in their conference competitions, and those schools were recently awarded the Wells Fargo Conference Cup for their respective conferences.
The Wells Fargo Cup is presented to the top overall athletic program in each conference from around the state in the four classifications and is based on regular-season performances within conference play and recognizes the best performances within each conference.
The award is based on the number of sports each school has and how high they finish in the conference standings.
