Brookwood, Wesleyan repeat as Directors Cup champions

Brookwood and Wesleyan kept its grip on the Directors Cup trophies this school year.

Brookwood repeated as the Class AAAAA champions, while Wesleyan won its fifth in a row and fourth straight in Class A.

"It's a very difficult thing to do. It's hard to win one time," Brookwood AD Mark Kimbro said. "You don't have to win state championships, but it certainly helps."

Brookwood scored 1,242.5 points to beat Walton's 1,189.5 points. Mill Creek (1118.5) was third, Peachtree Ridge (885) was seventh, North Gwinnett (848) was 10th and Parkview (831) was 11th.

The award goes to the state's top athletic programs based on a point scoring system in the playoffs. The award began in the 2000-01 school year and Gwinnett has won it's seventh of the past 12 years in Class AAAAA.

Brookwood had three teams win state championships -- boys cross country, boys track and field and girls swimming. The Broncos also got a runner-up finish from their baseball team.

"It's just a really neat thing," Kimbro said. "It's great for our administrators and athletic department. It causes pride in your whole athletic department and shows you've had a great year."

Wesleyan scored 1,071 points to easily win the Class A Directors Cup over Darlington's 771 points. Hebron was 17th with 493.5 points.

"It's certainly a tremendous honor on behalf of our community," Wesleyan AD Marc Khedouri said. "Ninety percent of our students play at least one sport, so it's an honor shared by the whole school."
