With the conclusion of the NJSIAA winter sports season, points have been tabulated and updated standings have been posted for the ShopRite Cup.
The ShopRite Cup program rewards schools for their performance and fair play through a point system based on their performance in NJSIAA tournament events. Bonus points are awarded for teams staying disqualification free, and points are reduced if any coaches are disqualified during an event.
The ShopRite Cup is awarded to the end-of-school year leaders in each of the six enrollment-based groups.
