OBU earns Sooner Athletic Conference Cup
Saturday, Aug 20, 2011
By Staff    


SHAWNEE, Okla. (BP)--Oklahoma Baptist University claimed five Sooner Athletic Conference titles and captured its second consecutive Sooner Athletic Conference Cup in 2010-11.

The annual award measures the best athletics program for the year. Each of the 12 schools in the SAC is scored based on regular season standings. In sports in which standings are not relevant (track, cross country and golf) the conference meet or tournament results are used.

Additional bonus points are awarded for success in postseason play. A team can earn 10 bonus points for its school by winning the national championship, eight for reaching the finals, six for making the semifinals and three for making the quarterfinals.

Each university's top six sports count toward its total. Only sports in which six or more schools compete are counted as a conference sport.

OBU finished with 372 points, followed by Oklahoma City at 365 and Wayland Baptist in third place at 344.

OBU won five SAC titles, including men's basketball, men's and women's track, men's soccer and volleyball. OBU picked up bonus points in men's and women's track with strong national finishes.
