Championships in women’s cross country and men’s indoor track and field, coupled with runner-up outings by men’s tennis and women’s golf propelled the University of Idaho the top of the Western Athletic Conference Commissioner’s Cup race with just a handful of sports remaining.

“I am proud of how we have grown the competitiveness of our athletic programs,” Vandal athletic director Rob Spear said. “This is a great testament to the quality of our coaches and student-athletes as well as the quality of our athletic department.”

The Vandals also picked up runner-up points in women’s indoor track and field, and third-place points in men’s cross country, soccer, volleyball, and women’s tennis to accumulate 59.25 points – three ahead of current runner-up Fresno State. New Mexico State and Utah State currently are tied for third (54.25) followed by Hawai`i (47.50), San Jose State (39.25), Nevada (36.50) and Louisiana Tech (32.75).

Points are awarded in order of conference finish, equal to the number of teams that participate in each sport and are averaged between a team’s regular-season finish (if applicable) and its WAC championship finish. Teams that do not qualify for a postseason tournament because of a smaller field, receive postseason points equal to their regular-season finish. Ties are not broken but instead are averaged between the tied teams.
