Two of the best high school athletic departments in the state can be found in East Cooper this year.

Bishop England and Wando High School both received the 2013-14 South Carolina Athletic Administrators Association (SCAAA) Director's Cup Award for their respective classifications.

The SCAAA annually recognizes the top athletic departments in the state based on a points system that measures 22 sports in the South Carolina High School League playoff system. Winning teams are awarded the Director's Cup trophy and a wall banner.

The premier athletic department in Class AA, Bishop England has won the Director's Cup each of the 12 years the award has been in existence. The department is led by athletics director Paul Runey and Principal Patrick Finneran. The Bishops won state championships in girls basketball, girls track, boys golf, volleyball and girls tennis, and finished second in boys track, girls cross-country and boys swimming this year.

Wando is led by athletics director Bob Hayes and Principal Lucy Beckham. The Warriors won state championships in boys basketball, boys soccer and girls soccer, and finished second in boys lacrosse, girls lacrosse, boys track, girls track and volleyball. It's Wando's second time winning the Director's Cup, the first coming in 2008-09.

Hilton Head won its fourth consecutive Director's Cup in Class AAA, and St. Joseph's Catholic won its second straight in Class A.
