Wells Fargo Banks and the Colorado High School Activities Association announced recently that area school Rifle and Grand Valley received the 2001-2002 Wells Fargo Cups for the each school’s respective league.

Rifle received the accolades for the 4A Western Slope League, unseating Steamboat Springs, which won the honor the previous two years. It is the fourth time Rifle has won the honor in the award’s nine-year history. Rifle won the award in the 1997-99 seasons.

Grand Valley won the award for the first time, earning the 2A Western Slope League honors. West Grand was the recipient of the award the previous three years.

Eagle Valley won the award for the 3A WSL.

“High school throughout Colorado offer students a a great variety of healthy and positive activities which complement the academic mission,” CHSAA commissioner Bill Reader said in a press release. “The Wells Fargo Cup recipients represent the best of many outstanding programs in the state. We salute these schools that go the extra mile for their students.”

The Wells Fargo Cup recognizes the schools for outstanding all-around success in athletics, music, speech and student leadership. A school in each league is annually presented with the Wells Fargo Cup. The determination in each league is made through the individual school participation in CHSAA-sanctioned activities.

League winners receive a brass cup, while classification winners receive a crystal cup and $1,200 for activities programs. The classification winners were Ridgway (1A), Limon (2A), D’Evelyn (3A) Broomfield (4A) and Smoky Hill (5A).
