Cumberlands, Georgetown Leads MSC President's Cup Following Fall Competition

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- University of the Cumberlands and Georgetown College lead the Mid-South Conference President's Cup race following fall competition in the MSC.

Cumberlands and Georgetown each scored 48 points in the all-sports competition in the six fall sports. Lindsey Wilson College is third with 46.5 points and defending cup champion Campbellsville University is fourth with 40.5 points.

Shawnee State University (38 points) is fifth followed by University of Rio Grande (35), University of Pikeville (20.5), University of Virginia's College at Wise (17.5) and St. Catharine College (17).

West Virginia University Tech is not eligible for the President's Cup due to being ineligible for regular season championships in the MSC in 2011-12.

The fall season includes men's and women's cross country, football, men's and women's soccer and volleyball.

Points are awarded based on the final regular season standings for each conference-sanctioned sport. The regular season champion in each sport receives 10 points with second place receiving nine points, etc. At the conclusion of the 2011-12 season, the top six male and top six female team finishes for each institution will generate the institution's overall totals.

Cumberlands sits tied atop the standings despite not capturing a team regular season title in the fall. The Patriots' consistent fall consisted of three second place finishes (men's and women's cross country and football), a third, fourth and fifth place finish.

Georgetown captured the football regular season title, finished second in women's soccer and tied for second in volleyball. The Tigers also recorded a third, fourth and a tie for fifth.

Cumberlands' men's teams scored 26 points -- the most among the men's side -- while the Georgetown women recorded the second-most women's points with 25.5 points.

Lindsey Wilson -- who finished with 26 women's team points -- captured the most regular season championships in the fall winning men's and women's soccer and volleyball. Shawnee State won the final two championships, capturing the men's and women's cross country titles.

The winter edition of the MSC President's Cup standings are scheduled to be announced in mid-March, 2012, following the completion of the men's and women's basketball, cheerleading and wrestling seasons.
