Following the winter athletic season the 2013-2014 KCAC Commissioner's Cup standings will be updated with basketball and indoor track & field points.

 

The winner of the 2013-2014 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 2012-2013 KCAC Commissioner's Cup was awarded to Tabor College who accumulated 126 points over the three sport seasons.

 

About the KCAC Commissioner's Cup

In an effort to recognize the achievements of its student-athletes and member institutions the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC) developed an award for the institution that performs the greatest over the fall, winter, and spring athletic seasons.  The KCAC Commissioner's Cup is awarded annually as a symbol of excellence in athletics over 18 championship athletic events. Member institutions earn points for the finish of each varsity team in officially recognized conference sports.

 

Points are assigned based on regular season finish for football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball, men's golf, softball, and tennis.  In cross country, competitive cheer, indoor track & field, and outdoor track & field the conference championship meet results will determine point values.  All official conference sports are scored equally. To be a conference sport there must be five member institutions competing in that sport at the varsity level.

 

Teams who finish in first place will be awarded 10 points, second place finishers nine points and so on until the final place team has been awarded a point value (i.e. if a sport only has seven teams, point values will be given from the maximum 10 to 4).  Ties will be awarded the same amount of points and the next highest finisher will be adjusted downward (i.e. two teams tying for 2nd place would each receive 9 points, then the next highest finisher would be for 4th place and would receive 7 points)
