The SUNYAC Commissioner's Cup point system is determined by the 20 different conference sports in the fall, winter and spring. A 10-point system is used in each sport. The first-place team gets 10 points, the second-place team gets 9 points and so on. A team's regular-season finish will be added to their post-season finish and divided by two for their final total for that sport. The total number of points that a school accumulates is divided by the number of conference sports it has. This school total determines the overall winner at the end of the school year.
In the fall, Geneseo earned the maximum of 10 points for SUNYAC championships in field hockey and men's cross country. Geneseo claimed 9.25 points in women's tennis, nine points for women's cross country, 7.5 points for volleyball and 5.75 points each for women's and men's soccer.
