TU wins Commissioner's Cup for second straight year
Transylvania became the first school to win the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Commissioner’s Cup in successive years when the Pioneers claimed the honor for the second straight time by coming out on top for the 2011-12 season.
The cup is won by the school that captures the most all-sports points in both men’s and women’s athletics. Transylvania’s women’s teams won 61.17 points while the men claimed 50.83 points for a combined total of 112. That bested second-place Franklin College (111.50) and third-place Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (110.17).
The women Pioneers won team championships in tennis and volleyball, finished second in golf, and were third in soccer. The men won titles in soccer, basketball, and golf and were second in tennis.
