WHAC - Mon, Jun. 3, 2013

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - (RESULTS) Davenport claimed its third consecutive Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) All-Sports Trophy with 88 total points. The award was presented to athletics director Paul Lowden at the annual WHAC meeting on June 3. Started in 1994, the All-Sports trophy is computed using the highest finish in 10 conference sports (five women and five men) for each school. Each sport champion is awarded points based on the number of schools participating in each sport. For a sport with all 12 WHAC schools participating, 12 points are awarded for first place with second receiving 11 points and so on. For a sport with only eight WHAC schools participating, eight points are awarded for first place with second receiving seven points and so on.

The Panthers scored points with conference championship in men's basketball, men's golf, men's lacrosse, women's soccer, and women's basketball. DU also got points from men's cross country, baseball, softball, women's cross country, and volleyball. Cornerstone finished in second place, just 8.5 points behind. Last year's runner-up, Indiana Tech, finished third at one point behind.

"Davenport coaches and student-athletes deserve the credit for this accomplishment," said Lowden upon receiving the award. "I am very proud of their continued commitment to excellence."

This year marked the first year that points were awarded for 10 sports. Previous year's winners were decided based on the top four sports for men and the top four sports for women. It's the 20th year for the award and Aquinas leads the field with 11 titles. Siena Heights and Davenport each have three; Cornerstone and Madonna have one each; and former league member Tri-State (now know as Trine University in Indiana) won the very first trophy.
