BLITZ Cup Standings: End of Winter
With the closing of the winter sports season, we give the second update to the BLITZ Cup Standings. The BLITZ Cup is given each year to the school in our coverage area that accumulates the most points. Points are given for state playoff appearances, winning seasons, region titles, state rankings, playoff wins/deep runs, Player of the Week and Year awards, and more. The BLITZ Cup is a traveling trophy that resides with the winning school for an entire year until a new school wins it. Each winner is engraved on the trophy’s placard for each winner since its inception in 2009-10. Currently, Rabun County holds the trophy as the winner from 2021-22.
Tallulah Falls, on the heels of a volleyball state championship, had a 1-point lead at the end of fall over White County. Lumpkin County, following gigantic seasons in girls basketball and wrestling, move into #1 by a big margin. Jefferson makes a huge surge up from #7 to #4 at the end of fall after a pair of state titles in wrestling. Banks County also had big gains after state runner-up finishes in basketball, going from 9th to 7th. Defending BLITZ Cup Champions Rabun County sits 6th overall. This is the final update, as the next one will be at the conclusion of spring, and thus be the final BLITZ Cup Standings.
