Farmingdale State Claims 2012-13 Skyline Presidents Cup


New York, N.Y. - After capturing three regular season and six league championships, Farmingdale State has earned the 2012-13 Skyline Conference Presidents Cup, a measure of all-sports excellence in conference competition. The Skyline Conference instituted the Presidents Cup in 2007-08.

Farmingdale State amassed 92.25 out of a possible 116 points for an overall rating of .795, while Mount Saint Mary finished second with a rating of .738. It marks the Rams’ second Presidents Cup in three seasons.

FSC claimed league crowns in baseball, women’s basketball, golf, women’s soccer, softball and men’s tennis and took home regular season titles in women’s lacrosse, baseball and men’s tennis. The Rams also advanced to the finals of the women’s tennis, women’s lacrosse and men’s basketball championships, respectively.

Mount Saint Mary garnered its highest-ever finish after seizing Skyline Championships in women’s tennis, women’s volleyball and women’s swimming, and won regular season titles in women’s tennis, women’s basketball, women’s volleyball and women’s soccer.

Four-time champion St. Joseph’s-L.I. (.693) finished third overall, followed by The Sage Colleges (.606), Purchase (.533), NYU-Poly (.457), Old Westbury (.450), Maritime (.396), Mount Saint Vincent (.309) and Yeshiva (.281).

A school earns points toward the Presidents Cup based upon the conference finish in each sport in which it competes. For each sport, the maximum number of points an institution can earn is equal to the number of teams competing in that sport. For sports with regular-season and conference tournament play, a school receives points based upon an average of the regular-season and conference tournament finishes. For sports with only conference championships, the finish in the championship determines the
Presidents Cup points. An overall rating is generated for each school which is a percentage of total points earned divided by total points possible for that school.
