Women win HCAC All-Sports trophy
For the first time since joining the league in 2001-02, Transylvania claimed the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference’s Women’s All-Sports trophy for the 2009-10 season.
Transy finished with 49 points to edge second place Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (48) and Franklin College (47), snapping a run of five straight All-Sports awards for Manchester College. Points are awarded based on where teams finish in conference standings.
Transy’s women’s programs won conference championships in basketball, softball, and tennis, and came in second in soccer. The soccer, softball, and tennis teams qualified for NCAA Division III national championship play.
Transylvania finished third in competition for the HCAC Commissioner’s Cup, earned by the school with the most combined points for men’s and women’s teams. Transy’s men’s program finished sixth last year with 37.5 points as Rose-Hulman won with 48. The men won conference titles in golf and tennis, and golf, soccer, and tennis all played in NCAA Division III championships.
Junior Kelsey Fulkerson was a member of the women’s tennis team that won the Heartland Conference championship.
