Marvin Ridge Athletic Program Celebrates Excellence with Wells Fargo Cup 3A State Championship

Good evening Mavericks, tonight we would like to celebrate an amazing accomplishment of the Marvin Ridge High School Athletic Program. Since the school opened we have achieved great success athletically by winning the conference Wells Fargo Cup for 7 straight years. Last year we again accomplished this feat, and after having placed in the top 5 at the state level for several years, Marvin Ridge broke through as the overall state champion for the 3A division.

Our athletic teams accumulated 5 state championships, 4 state runner-ups, 2 third place finishes, and a total of 18 playoff berths. Our teams amassed 697.5 Wells Fargo State Cup points, which is the most of any classification.

At mid-field is our State Championship banner, displayed by former Athletic Booster Club President, Steven Helms and current Athletic Booster Club President, Chris Robertson.

We would also like to welcome our special guests for this evening:
UCPS School Board Members; Mike Guzman, Christina Helms
UCPS School Board and Member of our State Board of Education: Marce Savage
Union County Public Schools Superintendent- Dr. Mary Ellis
The Village of Marvin Mayor- Joe Pollino
Founding Principal- Bill Cook
Union County Public Schools Athletic Director- Doug Jones

We would like to thank all of our special guests for their continued support of Marvin Ridge High School Athletics.

Please also give a warm welcome to Marvin Ridge High School Athletic Director Tom Jamerson and the Marvin Ridge High School administrative team:
Principal, Donna Cook
Assistant Principal, Lisa Justice
Assistant Principal, Matt Lasher
Assistant Principal, David Thomson

At this time please STAND AND CHEER as our Marvin Ridge High School drumline leads the athletes and coaches in our traditional State Championship Maverick Walk.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, Athletic Director Tom Jamerson presented our Principal, Donna Cook with a plaque to commemorate the 2013-2014 Wells Fargo State Championship. Marvin Ridge will be presented with the official Wells Fargo State Championship Cup at a football game this fall at UNC Chapel Hill.
Congratulations again to all of our 2013-2014 Maverick Athletes and Coaches.
