Leopards Sit Atop CCC Men's All-Sport Trophy Standings

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – At the conclusion of the 2015 fall athletic season, the Wentworth Institute of Technology Athletic Department finds itself atop the 2015-16 Commonwealth Coast Conference Men’s All-Sports Trophy standings.

During a successful fall campaign, the Leopards collected a total of 17 points as the cross country team captured its first conference championship and the men’s soccer team enjoyed its highest finish since 2009 (fourth). The two sports gave Wentworth an average of 8.5 which was ahead of last year’s winner Endicott (8.0 points), Gordon (7.5 points), and Roger Williams (7.0 points).

The all-sports trophies have been awarded annually since 2013-14 to the schools that perform the best across the board in league competition. One trophy is presented on the men’s side and one on the women’s side.

In each sport, points are awarded based on CCC championship and CCC runner-up finishes at 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 for 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 will then be divided by the number of CCC sports that each school sponsors to arrive at an average score.

The all-sport trophy standings will be updated again in March following the conclusion of the CCC winter season.
