Toreros win 3rd straight WCC Commissioners' Cup

June 1, 2010

SAN BRUNO, Calif. - For the third consecutive year, the University of San Diego has won the West Coast Conference Commissioner's Cup, presented by Comcast Cable. San Diego becomes just the second school in conference history to have won the Cup three straight years, joining Pepperdine University, which took home the first three Commissioner's Cup in 2002-04.

WCC Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich is in San Diego today to make the presentation to Dr. Mary E. Lyons, USD President, and Ky Snyder, Executive Director of Athletics, at 2:45 p.m. prior to USD's 3 p.m. WCC baseball game with Saint Mary's College.

"I would like to congratulate President Mary Lyons, Executive Director of Athletics Ky Snyder and all the Toreros on their remarkable third consecutive West Coast Conference Commissioner's Cup," said WCC Commissioner Jamie Zaninovich. "In a nationally competitive conference of eight like-minded institutions, the consistent excellence demonstrated by USD's athletics department is both extraordinary and a direct reflection of the breadth and commitment of its student-athletes, coaches, and administrators."

San Diego also won the 2009-10 WCC Men's All-Sports Award, while Pepperdine took home the WCC Women's All-Sports trophy. The Men's and Women's All-Sports Awards are given to the schools that accumulate the most points within each particular gender sport.

"I'm so proud of our student-athletes and coaches and their commitment to success," said Snyder. "The Commissioner's Cup is a testimony to our efforts to build a successful broad based sports program. Although the trophy is given to the institution, this prize goes to our student-athletes."

The WCC Commissioner's Cup, presented by Comcast Cable, is an all-sports award presented at the end of each academic year to the league's top performing school in conference play and 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.

With baseball still playing, San Diego entered the month of May tied with Santa Clara for first place in the Men's All-Sports Award standings. However, San Diego has already locked up the WCC baseball regular season title, clinching the Men's All-Sports Award. In addition to the WCC baseball title, the Toreros captured the WCC men's soccer title and the school's first-ever WCC women's rowing championship.

Pepperdine won the Women's All-Sports Award thanks to a strong spring season, which saw the Waves win their ninth straight WCC women's golf championship. The Waves finished in the top half of the conference in five of the WCC's seven sponsored women's sports. Pepperdine tallied 35.5 points to narrowly edge San Diego for the award.
