Racing to Another Historic Season
Marywood Sweeps President’s Cup Competitions
Dr. Mary Jo Gunning, Director of Athletics and Recreation, says athletes are proud of their accomplishments and look forward to another season.
"There is a great pride among the players," Dr. Gunning said. "Our student athletes work and play hard, and these awards honor that commitment."
Last year, Marywood achieved 78.5 percent of its potential President's Cup points, besting the nearest competitor by five percentage points. In the race for the Women's Cup, the Pacers earned 79.4 percent of the total possible points in women's sports, finishing in first place. In the Men's Cup competition, Marywood took an early lead after the fall and winter seasons, with strong finishes in men's soccer and men's cross country.
When asked how things have changed since last season, Gunning says Marywood's student-athletes have set a new standard for excellence.
"Marywood has enhanced an athletic tradition," she explained. "Last year, nearly every sport that had the opportunity to make a conference championship did so. For us, it was a major accomplishment."
