Presidents Cup Release from the Skyline Conference
NEW YORK, NY – By the slimmest of margins, St. Joseph’s-L.I. has captured the 2011-12 Skyline Conference Presidents Cup, a measure of all-sports excellence in conference competition. The Skyline Conference instituted the Presidents Cup in 2007-08.
St. Joseph’s-L.I. amassed 89.5 out of a possible 116 points for an overall rating of .772, while Farmingdale State finished with an overall rating of .771 as it compiled 90.25 out of a possible 117 points. SJC earned league crowns in men’s and women’s cross country and took home regular-season titles in men’s basketball and men’s soccer. The Golden Eagles also finished second at the women’s swimming championship and advanced to the finals of the women’s tennis and men’s soccer championships.
FSC, which won the 2010-11 President’s Cup, seized league championships in men’s golf, baseball, softball, men’s tennis and men’s basketball.
Mount Saint Mary (.721) finished third overall, followed by Old Westbury (.546), Maritime (.508), The Sage Colleges (.498), Purchase (.446), NYU-Poly (.433), Mount Saint Vincent (.326) and Yeshiva (.295).
A school earns points toward the Presidents Cup based upon the conference finish in each sport in which it competes. For each sport, the maximum number of points an institution can earn is equal to the number of teams competing in that sport. For sports with regular-season and conference tournament play, a school receives points based upon an average of the regular-season and conference tournament finishes. For sports with only conference championships, the finish in the championship determines the Presidents Cup points. ?An overall rating is generated for each school which is a percentage of total points earned divided by total points possible for that school.
