SCU finishes second in Commissioner’s Cup

For the second consecutive year, the Santa Clara Department of Athletics and Recreation finished second in the annual West Coast Conference Commissioner’s Cup standings. The Commissioner’s Cup is an all-sports award presented at the end of each academic year to the league’s top performing school in conference play. A Men’s and Women’s All-Sports Award, recognizing athletic achievement within each gender, is also presented.

Santa Clara finished second in the overall standings with 69.5 points, on the strength of a first-place tie in women’s soccer and second-place finishes in baseball, men’s and women’s cross country, and volleyball. The Broncos also tied for second in women’s basketball and claimed third-place conference finishes in men’s golf, men’s soccer, and women’s tennis.

The Bronco athletic department also finished second in the race for the league’s Women’s All-Sports Award and fourth in the Men’s All-Sports standings.

“With top-three finishes in nine of the 13 sports sponsored by the WCC, it is clear we’ve had a pretty good year,” said Cheryl L. Levick, SCU’s director of athletics. “I’m extremely proud of the accomplishments of our student-athletes and appreciate their competitiveness, determination, and sportsmanship.”
