Landmark Announces President's All-Sports Cup Fall Standings

MADISON, N.J. – For the second time in as many year Susquehanna University has jumped to the top of the Landmark President’s All Sports Cup standings after the fall sports season. With six of the Landmark’s 20 sports having completed their seasons, Susquehanna leads the standings with a score of 7.33. Juniata College sits in second place with 6.67 points while The Catholic University is a narrow .17 points back in third with a score of 6.5. Rounding out the top half of the standings is The University of Scranton with 5.5 points.

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.

Susquehanna was strong across all six sports, earning a team championship in men’s cross country and finishing no lower than third in four of the other five sports. The Crusaders also had runner-up regular-season finishes in women’s cross country and volleyball, and reach the Landmark Championship in field hockey and women’s soccer.

Repeat championships were the story of Juniata’s fall as the Eagles claimed their third-consecutive titles in volleyball and field hockey, and also finished atop the regular-season standings in both sports. Juniata also had a pair of third-place finishes in men’s and women’s cross country.

Catholic earned a pair of conference championships during the fall and had top-3 regular season finishes in four of the six sports during the season. The Cardinal women’s soccer team was tops in the regular season and earned the Landmark Championship, while the men’s soccer team also captured a Landmark title.

Scranton earned one team championship in the fall and finished in the top-4 in the standings in five of the six sports. The Royals women’s cross country team claimed the program’s first conference championship and the men’s soccer team made a run to the Landmark Championship match to also bolster its score.

Moravian College currently holds the Landmark President’s All-Sports Cup after earning the title each of the past two seasons.

With the fall season now complete, the eight Landmark institutions have already begun competition in the winter season. The teams will compete in men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s basketball and men’s and women’s indoor track and field during the winter months.
