NEW JERSEY HIGH SCHOOLS HONORED WITH THE SHOPRITE CUP

September 13, 2013

Awards to recognize top athletic programs for 2012-2013 school year

Keasbey, NJ -- (September 13, 2013) – New Jersey ShopRite stores will honor six top performing high school athletic programs this Fall with the presentation of the ShopRite Cup. Now in its tenth year, the ShopRite Cup is presented jointly by ShopRite stores and the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA).  Six winning schools – four public and two private – have received this prestigious award each year since the program’s inception in 2004.
 
“Awareness of the ShopRite Cup competition has grown tremendously since we first started this program, making it a coveted prize for schools and student athletes alike,” said Steve Timko, executive director of the NJSIAA. “Our participants not only learn the importance of teamwork during the season but also the benefits of hard work and determination. Whether they receive the Cup or not, all of our athletes are winners.”
 
To win, schools must earn ShopRite Cup points and finish in the top four places for their group’s state championship competition in 32 NJSIAA-sanctioned sports during the 2012-2013 school year. The ShopRite Cup also rewards bonus points for sportsmanship.
 
“Participation in team sports is such an important part of a young person’s life,” said Karen Meleta, spokeswoman for ShopRite. “ShopRite is honored to recognize these athletes, their commitment to their sport and their dedication to excellence.”
