Roger Williams was the All-Sports Trophy winner on the women's side with a 8.5 point/sport average.
The All-Sports Trophies have been awarded annually since 2013-14 to the schools that perform the best across the board in league competition.
In each sport, points are awarded based on CCC championship and CCC runner-up finishes in the conference tournament followed by the regular season finish of the remaining teams. The CCC Champion receives 10 points and the CCC runner-up receives nine points.
The regular season finish of the remaining teams is used to determine the number of points awarded to each of those programs. The team with the highest regular season finish, excluding the tournament champion and runner-up, receives eight points with the next team down receiving seven points. The process continues until all teams have been awarded points. In the event of a tie, each tied team receives the average of the sum of the spots for which they are competing.
After the total points are calculated, points are divided by the number of CCC sports that each school sponsors to arrive at an average score.
