San Bruno, Calif. - With the men's and women's tennis championships and the men's golf championships completed, the West Coast Conference announced updated WCC Commissioner's Cup standings. The Commissioner's Cup is an all-sports award presented at the end of each academic year to the league's top performing school in conference play. A Men's and Women's All-Sports Award, recognizing athletic achievement within each gender, will also be presented.

The recipient of the Commissioner's Cup is based on a point system, reflecting the place finish of each team in conference play. The Men's and Women's All-Sports Awards are given to the schools that accumulate the most points within each particular gender sport. The institution with the highest point total after combining the men's and women's point totals will be honored with the Commissioner's Cup.

Women's golf Commissioner's Cup points will be distributed after the completion of the WCC Rowing Championships that will take place on May 1. Five WCC schools sponsor women's golf and five sponsor women's rowing. Per conference policy, institution's will be awarded the higher of their institution's place finish in either women's golf or women's rowing. Institutions competing in both of those championships will only be awarded for their higher finish of the two, but not for both sports.

San Diego, last year's Commissioner's Cup champion, used top four finishes in men's and women's tennis and men's golf to pull ahead of Portland for first place in the overall standings. The Toreros finished second in men's tennis at this past week's WCC Championships, third in women's tennis, and tied for third at the men's golf championships.

Portland is in second place with 51.0 overall points, followed closely by San Francisco, which is in third with 50.0 points. Pepperdine sits in fourth place with 47.0 points, Loyola Marymount is fifth with 45.5 points, Gonzaga is sixth with 40.5 points, Saint Mary's is seventh with 39.0 points and Santa Clara is eighth with 33.0 points.
