Concord High ends Bow’s four-year reign as Monitor Cup champion
For the first time since 2009, Concord High captured the Monitor Cup as the top sports program in the Monitor’s coverage area.
The Crimson Tide won both the winter and spring seasons to claim the overall school year title and end Bow’s four-year reign.
The Monitor Cup ranks the area’s 16 high school varsity sports programs, awarding points based on records, how far teams advanced in the tournament and individual champions.
Concord racked up 346.5 points during the school year to edge Bow and Hopkinton, which tied for second with 341.5 points. Concord claimed the spring title with 95.5 points, with Bow (88.5) second and Coe-Brown (85) third.
In the weighted rankings, where total points are divided by the number of varsity sports offered, allowing smaller schools to measure themselves against their larger counterparts, Hopkinton (17.08 average) beat Bow (13.66) for top honors.
