Webster Athletics: 10th Straight SLIAC All-Sports Trophy, Four Conference Titles

| May 16, 2014

Webster University Athletics captured its tenth consecutive St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SLIAC) All-Sports Trophy after winning four conference titles during the 2013-14 year. This is the 14th time Webster has won the trophy in the past 15 years. The All-Sports Trophy is determined by awarding points based on each conference school’s finish in the SLIAC’s 12 sports.

Webster won this year’s trophy with a total of 97.5 points; after winning four conference titles and placing second in two additional sports. The Gorloks took home titles in men’s golf, women’s soccer, and baseball as well as tying for men’s soccer. Webster also placed second in volleyball and men’s basketball.

Greenville College placed second in the standings with 88.5 points after winning their first outright volleyball title. Westminster College was a close third with 84.5 points after winning the women’s cross-country championship and placing second in both men’s soccer and men’s tennis.

For the SLIAC All-Sports Trophy, a team earns ten points for a first-place finish, nine points for a second-place finish, etc. Teams finishing tied split the points for that place and the one following (e.g. two teams finishing tied for second receive 8.5 points). The SLIAC All-Sports Trophy guidelines were changed to be determined by total points, rather than a points average, in 2010. The change was made to further encourage the NCAA Division III philosophy of broad-based athletics programs.
