Lindsey Wilson finishes 2nd in MSC President's Cup

Lindsey Wilson has captured second place in the Mid-South Conference President's Cup year long competition, conference officials announced on Friday.

The Blue Raiders finished in second behind Cumberlands (KY) as both the Lindsey Wilson men and women's programs finished second in their respective All-Sports Trophy races.

The result marks the first time in 10 years that Lindsey Wilson hasn't won the MSC Presidents Cup. The Blue Raiders had won the past nine presidents cups with a streak that began during the 2011-12 season. Lindsey Wilson leads the conference with 10 all-time president cup titles.

Lindsey Wilson scored 127.5 points in the all-sports competition. The Blue Raiders tallied 64 points, just 0.5 points off first, in the Men's All-Sports Trophy and 63.5 points in the Women's All-Sports Trophy.

The points are awarded based on the final regular-season standings for each conference-sanctioned sport. The regular-season champion or event champion -- in the case where there is no regular season -- in each sport receives 10 points with second place receiving nine points, etc. The top seven male and top seven female team finishes for each institution will generate the institution's overall totals. For co-ed sports, points are awarded to the gender that benefits the most by the co-ed score.

Cumberlands (KY) finished first with 130 points, just two points ahead of Lindsey Wilson. The Patriots took the Men's All-Sports Trophy with 64.5 points and the Women's All-Sports Trophy with 65 total points.

Campbellsville (KY) was third with 112.5 points while Cumberland (Tenn.) took fourth with 106.5 points. Life (GA) finished fifth with 95 points, Tennessee Southern was sixth with 99 points as Thomas More (KY) took for seventh with 97 points. Georgetown (Ky.) finished eighth with 92.5 points as Bethel (TN) finished for ninth with 74.5 points and Shawnee State (Ohio) sits 10th with 71.5 points. Pikeville (KY) took 11th with 56.5 points as Freed-Hardeman (TN) rounds out the President's Cup standings with 44.5 points.

In fall sports, Lindsey Wilson picked up team championships and a max of 10 points in football, men's soccer, and men and women's tennis.
