The Tabor college athletic department has moved into sole possession of first place in the inaugural KCAC Commissioner Cup standings heading into the spring sports and the final leg of the collegiate athletic season.
The Bluejays currently hold a four-point lead over second place Friends University with 75 total points in the cup standings.
According to KCAC Conference Commissioner Scott Crawford, the Commissioner Cup is an effort to recognize the achievements of its student-athletes and the member institutions of the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference.
The award was developed to honor the institution that performs the greatest over the fall, winter, and spring athletic seasons. The KCAC Commissioner’s Cup will be awarded annually as a symbol of excellence in athletics covering 17 championship events. Member institutions earn points for the finish of each varsity team in officially recognized conference sports.
Tabor Vice-President for Athletics and Enrollment commented, “The Commissioner’s Cup measures competitive success and we are excited about the way our teams have performed this year. As a department, we believe that competitive success is the result of excellence on and off the field. We believe that when we diligently carry out the mission of the Tabor athletic department, competitive success will follow. The Tabor athletic department mission is to provide student-athletes with an environment that supports learning, promotes excellence and stimulates Christian growth.” The winner of the first KCAC Commissioner’s Cup will be announced directly following the spring athletic season, in which baseball, softball, men’s golf, tennis, and outdoor track & field will be scored.
The first KCAC Commissioner’s Cup will be awarded formally at the 2012 – 2013 KCAC Sport Management Conference on Tuesday, August 6 at Southwestern College.
