Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012
For the fifth year in a row West Virginia Wesleyan has swept the WVIAC Presidents’ and Commissioner’s cups.
The Bobcats claimed the regular season and conference tournament titles in both women’s basketball and softball, while the women’s soccer team won the regular season title. The men’s track and field team also claimed the WVIAC Championship.
Seton Hill, Concord, Charleston and Wheeling Jesuit rounded out the top five in the Commissioner’s Cup standings. Charleston, Seton Hill, Shepherd and Alderson-Broaddus completed the top five for the Presidents’ Cup.
“We are extremely proud to win both the WVIAC Commissioner’s and Presidents’ Cups for the fifth straight year,” said Director of Athletics Ken Tyler. “This accomplishment is a testament to our talented student-athletes and our dedicated coaching staff. It was a true team effort and reflects our strong commitment to broad-based athletic success.”
The Presidents’ Cup is awarded to the school that has the highest average score for sports sponsored within the WVIAC. Points are awarded based on finishes in the regular season of each sport. The number of schools participating for each championship also factors into the rating.
The Commissioner’s Cup is awarded to the institution with the highest cumulative score as determined by a scoring method used by the league. Points are awarded based on the school’s finish after completion of each of the sports sponsored by the WVIAC.
