SUNYAC Announces Fall Commissioner's Cup Standings




SUNYAC Commissioner's Cup

The Geneseo Blue Knights lead the SUNYAC Commissioner's Cup standings following the fall sports season as announced by the State University of New York Athletic Conference on Wednesday, November 16. Geneseo accumulated 57.25 points over the seven completed sports for an average of 8.18 points per sport. Cortland stands second with 8.14 points per sport after accumulating 57 points. The Red Dragons have won 14 of the 15 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 of 2011, Geneseo earned the maximum of 10 points for SUNYAC championships in women's and men's cross country. Geneseo claimed 9.75 points for the SUNYAC champion women's tennis team, 7.75 points for men's soccer, 7.25 points for field hockey, seven points for women's soccer and 5.5 points for volleyball.
