Braves Post School-Best Finish In PBC Commissioner’s Cup Standings
AUGUSTA, Ga. – On the shoulders of a
phenomenal athletic season that saw five of its teams qualify for
NCAA postseason berths, UNCP posted its highest finish ever in the
final Peach Belt Conference Commissioner’s Cup Standings
released by the league office in Augusta, Ga.
Fueled by top-three league finishes in five different sports, the Braves settled into fifth place in the final league-wide tally. Columbus State was named the recipient of the 2011 PBC Commissioner’s Cup, with Clayton State, Armstrong and Georgia College rounding out the top five. UNCP registered a seventh place finish in the final 2005-06 PBC Commissioner’s Cup standings, but did not finish higher than 10th in each of the next four athletic campaigns.
The Braves rallied on the performances of the men’s cross country team (2nd), the women’s cross country team (3rd), the women’s soccer team (3rd), the men’s golf team (2nd) and the women’s golf team (champions) to attain most of their point total. However, 11 of UNCP’s 16 varsity athletic teams completed their 2010-11 season with winning records, five teams participated in NCAA postseason play and individuals from three other sports earned berths into the NCAA Championships as well.
