Christian Brothers Academy Athletics won the 2016 NJSIAA ShopRite Cup for best non-public athletic department in the state of New Jersey, as announced by the NJSIAA on Thursday morning.

The ShopRite Cup is determined through a points system designed by the NJSIAA, which rewards schools for high finishes in NJSIAA-sanctioned conference and state events. All sports at CBA are governed by the NJSIAA, except crew, rugby and sailing which have independent governing bodies.

First Place: Swimming, Indoor Track Relays, Indoor Track Overall, Outdoor Track & Field
Second Place: Soccer, Cross Country, Ice Hockey, Golf
Third Place: Tennis
Fourth Place: Wrestling
In addition, CBA earned points in both the winter and spring seasons for having zero ejections across all sports during those seasons.
