William Woods wins third straight AMC President's Cup

July 17th, 2014 in News

The William Woods University athletic department recently claimed the American Midwest Conference President's Cup for the third year in a row. The trophy is given to the conference's all-sports champion.

William Woods totaled 557.5 points out of a possible 660 to wrap up the honor. Park University finished second with 492.5 points, while Columbia College (470), Missouri Baptist University (420) and Freed-Hardeman University (375.5) rounded out the top five.

The fall/winter sports seasons saw William Woods send four teams and one athlete - women's cross country, women's basketball, men's and women's indoor track and field and men's cross country runner Kaleb Wilson - to national competition.

The school followed that up with a stellar spring season as every sport had a team or individual athlete qualify for their respective national championships.

"Winning the President's Cup is a great way to finish the 2013-14 season," said William Woods' Jason Vittone, who on Tuesday was named the AMC's 2013-14 athletic director of the year. "The achievements of our student-athletes and coaches were fun to watch.

"I think the award signifies the university's commitment to giving every sport and student-athlete an opportunity to be successful at a high level. Having a great support from our administration, faculty and staff makes this a great institution to work for."
