GCU Wins Second Consecutive WAC Commissioner's Cup

GCU Wins Second Consecutive WAC Commissioner's Cup

DENVER – For the second consecutive year, Grand Canyon has won the Western Athletic Conference Commissioner's Cup finishing with 109.75 points. The Lopes won eight WAC championships during 2018-19, winning postseason titles in men's soccer, women's indoor track & field, men's indoor track & field, men's swimming & diving, men's tennis and women' outdoor track & field. In addition, the men's tennis and women's tennis teams claimed regular-season titles.

The WAC awards its Commissioner's Cup to the school that performs the best in each of the conference's 19 men's and women's championships. Points are awarded in order of finish, equal to the number of teams that participate in each sport and are averaged between a team's regular-season finish (if applicable) and its WAC championship finish. Teams that do not qualify for a postseason tournament due to a smaller field receive postseason points equal to their regular season finish. Teams that are ineligible for the postseason receive zero postseason points but can still earn regular-season points. Ties are not broken but instead are averaged between the tied teams. Affiliate members are not eligible for the Commissioner's Cup but their standings are still used for determining points.

NM State finished in second place with 93.75 points. The Aggies won regular-season titles in women's basketball, men's basketball and baseball, and captured postseason titles in volleyball, women's basketball, men's basketball, women's golf and women's tennis.

UT Rio Grande Valley placed third with 91.75 points, earning regular-season titles in volleyball and baseball. Utah Valley was fourth with 87.50 points, earning the men's cross country and men's outdoor track & field championships.

Kansas City finished fifth with 79.25 points. The Roos won the regular-season title in women's soccer and the men's golf championship. Seattle U was sixth with 69.00 points, earning the women's soccer championship and both the regular-season and tournament titles in softball.

California Baptist was seventh with 51.00 points despite not being eligible for a number of WAC championships due to NCAA rules during its Division I transition period. The Lancers won the women's cross country championship and the baseball regular-season title.

CSU Bakersfield was eighth with 43.75 points, while Chicago State finished ninth with 24.50 points.
