CBA PRESENTED WITH RECORD NINTH SHOPRITE CUP
October 11, 2017
Much like clockwork, the New Jersey Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) presented Christian Brothers Academy with the ShopRite Cup for best non-public athletics program in New Jersey on Tuesday afternoon.
It is the third consecutive year that CBA has topped the standings and ninth time in the 14-year history of the award.
In 2016-2017, CBA’s cross country, soccer, indoor track relay, indoor track overall, golf and outdoor track teams won their respective NJSIAA state championship. Both swimming and tennis finished as runners-up, while CBA Hockey took third place in their state tournament. These nine programs won points towards the ShopRite Cup standings.
In addition, CBA earned points in both the winter and spring seasons for having zero ejections across all sports during those seasons.
Non-Public School Standings:
1) Christian Brothers Academy (168)
2) Delbarton School (136)
3) Immaculate Heart Academy (133)
4) Bergen Catholic (93)
5) Pingry School (92)
“CBA athletes don’t compete for awards or recognition,” Chiaravalloti continued. “We compete because of a burning passion to strive for excellence in all that we do. A passion to uphold the tradition built by those who came before us. This year’s ShopRite Cup is a celebration not only for our current athletes and coaches, but for all those who have ever worn the navy and white or cheered as a member of the Colt Crazies.”
Christian Brothers previously won the ShopRite Cup in 2004 (inaugural year), 2005, 2006, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2016.
