SUNYAC Announces Winter Commissioner's Cup Standings



SUNYAC Commissioner's Cup

The SUNY Geneseo Blue Knights lead the SUNYAC Commissioner's Cup standings following the winter sports season. Geneseo has accumulated 115.50 points over the 14 completed sports for an average of 8.25 points per sport, up from their 8.18 points per sport average following the seven fall sports. Cortland stands second with 7.46 points per sport, down from their fall score of 7.93 points per sport. The Red Dragons have won 13 of the 14 Commissioner Cup competitions, with Geneseo claiming the title in 2002-03.

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.

In the winter, Geneseo earned the maximum of 10 points for three SUNYAC championships in women's basketball, men's and women's swimming and diving. The Blue Knights received nine points each for men's and women's indoor track and field, 8.25 points for men's ice hockey and two points for men's basketball.
