Hope College continues to lead the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Commissioner’s Cup standings after the winter season, the MIAA announced today.

Hope has totaled 107 points between women’s sports to lead second-place Calvin by three points and third-place Albion by 34.5.

This winter, Hope added to its total with regular-season championships in women’s and men’s basketball, runner-up finishes in women’s swimming & diving and indoor women’s track & field, a third-place effort in men’s swimming & diving and a fourth-place performance in indoor men’s track & field.

Hope also topped the MIAA with 59 points in women’s sports and 48 in men’s sports.

The MIAA Commissioner’s Cup award is based on the cumulative performance of each member school in the league's 22 sports for men and women.

The final Commissioner’s Cup standings is determined on the basis of each college's standings in eight of eleven sports for men and eight of eleven sports for women. All eight fall and six winter results are tabulated in these standings.

This is the second year of a new Commissioner’s Cup scoring formula introduced in 2014-15 that awards the same number of points to the MIAA champion in each sport, regardless of gender. The points sequence awarded to women is 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 and on the men’s side it is 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2.

The Commissioner’s Cup (All-Sports Award) was first presented in 1934-35. Hope has won the award 35 times, followed by Kalamazoo (15), Albion (14), Calvin (10) and Alma (5).
