UCSD GRABS FOURTH CONSECUTIVE COMMISSIONER’S CUP; SEVENTH IN FINAL D-II DIRECTORS’ CUP STANDINGS

Powered by conference championships in five sports—women’s soccer, women’s basketball, women’s tennis, women’s track & field and baseball—UC San Diego won the 2008-09 Commissioner’s Cup, emblematic of the top overall athletic program in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. UCSD has now won the Commissioner’s Cup all four years that it has been in existence.

The Commissioner’s Cup is presented in association with Apple Computer and is awarded to the CCAA member institution with the highest aggregate ranking in eight (8) of the CCAA’s 13 championship sport offerings. In addition to its five league titles, the Tritons also netted runner-up finishes in women’s volleyball and men’s cross country. Sonoma State wound up in second place with Cal Poly Pomona in third.

On the national level, UC San Diego claimed seventh place in the 2008-09 NCAA Division II Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup competition. UCSD has placed seventh or higher in eight of its nine seasons at the Division II level. The Directors’ Cup ranks institutions based on their performance in NCAA post-season play. Grand Valley State (MI) was the D-II champion for the sixth straight year.
