Hope Wins 2003-04 Commissioner's Cup

Hope College has won the 2003-04 Commissioner's Cup and the Men's All-Sports award while Calvin College has won the Women's All-Sports Award.

The MIAA presents separate awards for the best cumulative finish in men's and women's sports as well as an award for the best cumulative finish in all league sports (men and women). The separate awards are known as the Men's All-Sports Award and the Women's All-Sports Award while the cumulative award is known as the Commissioners' Cup.

The standings are determined on the basis of each college's standings in eight of nine sports for men and eight of nine sports for women. These point-totals are added together to determine the winner of the Commissioners' Cup.

Commissioner's Cup Standings: 1. Hope 177, 2. Calvin 164, 3. Albion 142, 4. Alma 105, 5. Kalamazoo 92, 6. Olivet 60, 7. Adrian 59.
