 Cortland Athletics Wins SUNYAC Commissioner’s Cup

05/13/2014 

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 2013-14 school year.

Cortland has won the Commissioner’s Cup, which is awarded for overall sports excellence, in 17 of the 18 years that it has been awarded, including the last 11 seasons. The Cup is named for Dr. Damore, the long-time SUNYAC Commissioner who retired in 2012.

Cortland finished with an average score of 8.18 points. Geneseo was second with an average score of 7.68 points and Oneonta was third at 7.56 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 six league crowns: men’s cross country; women’s indoor track and field; women’s lacrosse; men’s lacrosse; baseball; and women’s outdoor track and field. The Red Dragons also finished as league runner-up in five sports: field hockey; men’s soccer; women’s swimming and diving; softball; and men’s outdoor track and field. The SUNYAC sponsors 20 sports.
