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.”
