AQUINAS COLLEGE CAPTURES WHAC ALL-SPORTS CHAMPIONSHIP
May 18, 2010 - For the third consecutive year, Aquinas College placed first in the race for the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) All-Sports Trophy. The Saints have captured the WHAC All-Sports Trophy in eleven of the last 13 years. The WHAC All-Sports Trophy is computed using the highest finish in eight conference sports (four women and four 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 eight schools participating, eight points are awarded for first place with second receiving seven and so on. A tie results in adding the total points for the tied spots together and dividing by the number of teams that are tied, with the teams sharing the points. Aquinas edged out second-place Cornerstone by four and a half points.
The Saints won conference championships in Women's Cross Country, Men's Soccer, Women's Outdoor Track & Field and Men's Outdoor Track & Field.
