Roger Williams University Claims the 2013-14 CCC Men’s All-Sports Trophy

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - After the spring 2014 season, the men's athletics program at Roger Williams University has earned the inaugural 2013-14 Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Men's All-Sports Trophy. The women's athletics program at Endicott College captured the 2013-14 CCC Women's All-Sports Trophy.

The all-sports trophies will be awarded annually to the schools which perform the best across the board in league competition. Points are awarded based on CCC championships and CCC runner-up finishes at the conference tournament followed by the regular season finish of the remaining teams. In each sport, the CCC champion will receive 10 points and the CCC runner-up will receive nine points. The regular season finish will be used to determine points for the remaining teams in each sport from eight points down including all ties. After the total points are calculated, points will then be divided by the number of CCC sports that the school sponsors to arrive at an average score.

Roger Williams posted the highest total average of points in the conference, 7.71, to claim the inaugural CCC All-Sports Trophy for the men. The Hawks captured the men’s cross country championship title, a runner-up finish in soccer and tennis, along with a third-place finish in both baseball and lacrosse to earn the CCC’s Men’s All-Sports Trophy.

Endicott College and Western New England University narrowly missed out on the 2013-14 men’s trophy, as the Gulls recorded an average of 7.64 points, while the Golden Bears posted 7.57 points to place second and third respectively. Gordon College claimed fourth with an average of 6.75 points, followed by Nichols College (6.29), Salve Regina University (5.92), Wentworth Institute of Technology (4.92), Eastern Nazarene College (4.60), the University of New England (4.60), and Curry College (2.80).

This is the first year that the CCC will be awarding all-sports trophies. The standings were determined on the basis of each school's finish at the championship and the regular season standings in the seven CCC men's sports, which include baseball, basketball, cross country, golf, lacrosse, soccer, and tennis. The 2013-14 trophy will be presented to the Roger Williams University Hawks during the fall of 2014.
