Gallaudet University athletics places eighth in 2017-18 NEAC Presidents’ Cup standings

GANSEVOORT, N.Y. – The Gallaudet University athletics program finished in
eighth place out of 14 schools in the final 2017-18 North Eastern Athletic
Conference (NEAC) Presidents’ Cup standings announced by the conference
office today. The NEAC Presidents’ Cup is calculated by a school’s
standings for athletic, academic, sportsmanship and community service
success throughout the school year.

Gallaudet was fourth in the Athletics Direct Reports’ Cup for
sportsmanship where men’s swimming and diving were tops in their
respective sports category for sportsmanship. Morrisville State College
was first in this category.

GU finished seventh in the Senior Woman Administrators’ Cup for community
Service. Keuka College took home the cup in this category.

The Bison finished 10th overall in the Athletics Directors’ Cup as they
placed 10th overall in the men’s standings and seventh in the women’s
standings. GU fielded six teams, last season, that competed on the
women’s side (basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, swimming,
volleyball) and five on the men’s side (baseball, basketball, cross
country, soccer, swimming). The Athletic Directors’ Cup standings for
men’s and women’s athletic success are determined by percentage and
not total points earned because some schools don’t support all 18 sports
sponsored by the conference. Penn St.-Berks won the Athletics Directors’

The Bison placed 10th in the conference in the Faculty Athletic
Representatives’ Cup for academics.

Lancaster Bible College won the NEAC Presidents’ Cup with 11 points as it
placed first in the Faculty Athletic Representatives’ Cup, second in the
Athletics Direct Reports’ Cup and finished in the top four in two other
categories. This is Lancaster Bible’s second NEAC Presidents’ Cup since
joining the conference. Keuka College finished second (17 points) followed
by Morrisville State College (19.5), Penn College (20) and Penn St.-Berks
(21) round out the top five.

This is the fourth year that the NEAC has determined its Presidents’ Cup
winner by utilizing the core values of NCAA Division III. In addition to
calculating athletics success, which was the only factor taken into
consideration when awarding the conference’s Presidents’ Cup in the
past, the NEAC now also takes into account academics, sportsmanship and
community service.

Under the new scoring system the highest Gallaudet has placed is sixth
overall in 2014-15. The highest the Bison have placed all-time in the NEAC
Presidents’ Cup is fourth in 2010-11, GU’s first season in the conference.
