It was pretty much a foregone conclusion even before Wesleyan's recent Class A state baseball championship, but the Wolves officially wrapped up the school's second straight GADA Dodge Director's Cup championship over the weekend.
Wesleyan finished with 1,346.5 total points, more than 500 points ahead of runner-up Darlington.
With state championships in baseball, football, girls basketball, girls track and field and girls golf, plus runner-up finishes in wrestling (traditional and duals) and boys cross country, Wesleyan teams were every bit as successful at Class A as they were at AA, where the school won last year's Director's Cup before being reclassified this school year.
"We're really proud of our coaches and our student-athletes," Wesleyan athletic director Marc Khedouri said. "This was a terrific year for us athletically. We were blessed."
Wesleyan swept all three categories in Class A - the overall and each gender.
While Wesleyan was the only overall champion, several other Gwinnett schools were well represented in their respective classifications.
Peachtree Ridge won the boys competition in AAAAA, while Mill Creek was that classification's girls champion. Both schools finished in the top 10 in the overall. Parkview finished as runner-up to champion Walton, with Brookwood third, Peachtree Ridge fourth and Mill Creek seventh.
In AA, GAC was the girls champion, and placed fourth overall.
