University of Portland Tops 2016 WCC Commissioner’s Cup Standings


December 13, 2016

The University of Portland sits atop the West Coast Conference Commissioner’s Cup standings after a historic fall season on The Bluff.

The Pilots claimed league titles in men’s soccer and women’s cross country and had three WCC Coach of the Year honorees after a spectacular start to the 2016-17 sports season. In addition to earning top points from the two WCC titles, Portland also earned a second-place finish in men’s cross country and tied for third in volleyball, the best finish in program history. Women’s soccer placed sixth overall. 

The Commissioner’s Cup is awarded annually to the WCC institution garnering the most success during Conference play. It is based on a point system, reflecting the finish of each team in conference play. The institution with the highest point total after combining the men's and women's point totals is honored with the Commissioner's Cup. Portland earned a total of 41.0 points to edge BYU who finished the fall with 38.5 points.
