(Posted June 3, 2009)
HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- Juniata College finished fourth in the 2008-09 Landmark Conference Presidents' All-Sports Cup standings, when final standings were announced on Wednesday.
The Eagles finished with 5.985 points in the Presidents' All-Sports Cup race, with Moravian College winning the cup for the second year in a row with 7.222 points. The University of Scranton was second with 6.719 points, while Susquehanna University was third with 6.538 points.
Juniata finished third in the 2007-08 standings, trailing Moravian and Scranton.
The Landmark President's All Sports Cup is awarded based on a formula that rewards institutions for their finishes in the regular season conference standings as well as results in Landmark postseason competition. The formula also takes into account the number of sports a school sponsors.
Juniata's fourth-place finish was aided by strong spring in which the team claimed postseason berths in three sports. The women's tennis and women's outdoor track teams collected second-place finishes on the year, while its softball and men's tennis teams also captured postseason berths. The Eagles earned a pair of team championships overall during the year, both of which came in the fall season.
