Lancers crowned best athletic program in PacWest for the fourth-straight year
Riverside, Calif. (May 18, 2017) – For the fourth-straight year and fifth since joining the conference,
California Baptist University has been named the best program in the PacWest by winning
the coveted Commissioner's Cup.
The PacWest Commissioner's Cup was established in 2007-08 to honor the athletic program with the best overall performance in that academic year. CBU scored 157 points, an all-time high in the current 14-sport format. CBU won five PacWest Championships in 2016-17—men's cross country, women's cross country, women's basketball, women's golf and softball. CBU also finished in second place in men's soccer, volleyball, men's basketball and men's golf.
"I'm proud of our student-athletes, coaches and staff for winning the cup four years in a row," said Dr. Micah Parker, CBU director of Athletics. "Particularly, this group of senior athletes has been consistently outstanding in PacWest competition, evident in them winning the Commissioner's Cup all four years of their careers. This accomplishment is a true blessing."
