Sharks in Hunt for SSC Mayors’ Cup

rp_primary_ssc57The Nova Southeastern University Athletic Department ranks in the top three for both men and women in the Sunshine State Conference Mayors’ Cup Standings after the fall and winter seasons.

The Sharks rank second overall in the women’s standings with 27 points, while NSU’s men’s teams rank third with 18 points. Through the winter sports season, Tampa’s women hold a four-point edge over NSU. The Florida Southern men are on top by half a point over Saint Leo, who lead NSU by 2.5 points.

Winners of the SSC Mayors’ Cup will be announced directly following the spring athletic season, in which baseball, softball, golf, tennis, lacrosse, and rowing will be scored. In an effort to further recognize the achievements of its student-athletes and member institutions the Sunshine State Conference awards the institution in both men’s and women’s athletics that performs the greatest over the fall, winter and spring sport seasons. The Mayors’ Cup is awarded annually as a symbol of excellence in athletics over 18 championship sports.

Member institutions earn points for the finish of each varsity team in officially recognized conference sports. Teams receive points for final position in regular season standings (volleyball, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s lacrosse, softball and baseball) or in final championship standings (men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s swimming, men’s and women’s golf and rowing).
