Athletics Program Again Earns SUNYAC Cup

 Athletics Program Again Earns SUNYAC Cup

05/21/2013 

The SUNY Cortland intercollegiate athletics program finished first in the Dr. Patrick R. Damore State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) Commissioner's Cup standings for the 2012-13 school year. Cortland has won the Commissioner's Cup, which is awarded for overall sports excellence, in 16 of the 17 years that it has been awarded, including the last 10 seasons.

The Cup is named for the first time this year for Dr. Damore, the long-time SUNYAC Commissioner who retired in 2012.

Cortland finished with an average score of 8.46 points. Geneseo was second with an average score of 7.43 points and Oneonta was third at 6.42 points.

Commissioner's Cup points are awarded based on each team's finish in the SUNYAC standings, both during the regular season and in league postseason tournaments, when applicable. The first-place school in each sport receives 10 points, second place receives nine points, and so on. A school's regular-season finish is added to its postseason finish and is divided by two to determine the points for each sport. The total points earned are then divided by the number of conference sports the school sponsors.

Cortland won 11 league crowns: women's soccer; women's volleyball; men's basketball; men's swimming and diving; women's indoor track and field; baseball; softball; men's lacrosse; women's lacrosse; men's outdoor track and field; and women's outdoor track and field. Cortland also finished as league runner-up in four sports: field hockey; men's cross country; men's indoor track and field; and women's swimming and diving. The SUNYAC sponsors 20 sports.
