SOU claims 4th straight CCC All-Sports title

For the fourth year in a row, Southern Oregon University will hang a Cascade Conference All-Sports championship banner after landing at No. 1 in the final 2018-19 standings that were released Thursday by the league office.

Points for the All-Sports Trophy standings are awarded based on a department’s top eight finishes in CCC regular-season standings, except in the cases of cross country, golf, track and field and men’s wrestling, which are scored based on finishes in the championship meets. The Raiders won four such titles: in men’s soccer and volleyball in the fall, and men’s track and field and softball in the spring.

SOU totaled 203.1 points and Oregon Tech, which was deadlocked with the Raiders heading into the spring season, finished second place for the second year in a row with 191.7. Eastern Oregon (187.3), College of Idaho (181.9) and Corban (162.6) were next in the standings.

SOU got important points from its men’s and women’s cross country teams, which both finished second at their championship meets, and from its third-place women’s track and field team.

The trophy was awarded for the first time in 2006-07. The Raiders won it for the first time in 2015-16.
