Strong Showing For Regis Athletics In First GNAC Commissioner's Cup

WINTHROP, Mass. – Regis Athletics closed its first league campaign with a solid overall showing, finishing with a share of third place for the men and sixth out of 13 teams on the women’s side in the 2017-18 Great Northeast Athletic Conference’s Commissioner’s Cup. 

The GNAC Commissioner's Cup annually recognizes the member institution that achieves the highest level of athletic success throughout the academic year. It is based upon a point system and standings are determined by percentages in order to reflect the number of GNAC sports that each member sponsors. Schools receive five points for winning a GNAC Championship, four points for advancing to a conference title game, three points for competing in a GNAC Semifinal, two points for qualifying for a GNAC Tournament, or one point for sponsoring the sport.

Regis was aided greatly this past April with GNAC titles for the men’s and women’s track and field teams with the men’s tennis team advancing to the final of the GNAC Tournament, and both the men's and women's swimming and diving teams finishing second at the GNAC Championships.

Johnson & Wales (RI) won on the men’s and women’s side for the third time in league history after claiming seven league titles between them.

Next year’s GNAC's Commissioner's Cup standings will include Colby-Sawyer College as a full-time member, as the Chargers get set to begin conference play in 2018-19.
