LA JOLLA, Calif. - The California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) crowned UC San Diego as the winner of the Commissioner's Cup for the recently completed 2009-10 season, marking the fifth-straight year that the Tritons have received the honor. The announcement was made Thursday at the CCAA's Executive Council Meetings in La Jolla.

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 of the CCAA's 13 championship sport offerings. The winning institution receives a laptop computer and a glass trophy.

"I'm really pleased and excited to continue this tradition," UCSD Director of Athletics Earl W. Edwards said. "Being the best overall program in the conference is something in which everyone at UC San Diego takes a lot of pride, particularly given the top-to-bottom strength of the CCAA. It's a testament to our coaches, staff and student-athletes."

UCSD totaled 19 points, while Chico State ended the season in second place with 20 points. It was the closest finish in the five-year history of the program.

The Tritons captured conference titles in baseball, women's basketball and women's tennis, and finished second in women's cross country, women's volleyball, men's track and field, women's track and field and women's soccer.

An institution's Commissioner's Cup ranking is calculated using its top two league finishes in the fall, winter and spring sports seasons, as well as the highest two remaining finishes, regardless of season.
