Following a successful winter season, Cal U's athletic program moved up to

second place in the 2009-2010 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC)

Dixon Trophy standings.

The Vulcans began spring competition with 124 overall points after earning

49.5 points from their five winter sports, men's and women's basketball,

women's swimming and men's and women's indoor track and field.

 

Shippensburg leads the standings with 138 points.

Cal U earned a winter-best 15 points from the women¹s basketball program

after the team advanced to the championship game of the PSAC Tournament for

a league-record 10th consecutive season.

The Vulcans collected 11 points after finishing fifth at the PSAC

Championships last month and in the nation's top 20 for the second

consecutive year. 

The women's indoor track and field team achieved its best finish in program

history, earning 10 points after placing sixth at the PSAC Championships.

The team set eight records during the indoor season.

Men's basketball finished with 7.5 points for a second-straight year, and

the men's indoor track and field team totaled six points.

Seven different institutions have won the Dixon Trophy. Cal U brought home

the trophy a year ago with a conference-record 161 points.

 

The Dixon Trophy has been awarded annually since the 1995-96 academic year.

The winner is determined by a point system based on the results of

conference playoffs and/or regular-season records.

Each institution's point total is calculated by adding its top six women's

finishes and top six men's finishes in 22 conference sports.

The award is named for the late F. Eugene Dixon Jr., former chairman of the

Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.

The final eight league championships will take place this spring, in

baseball, women's golf, women's lacrosse, softball, men's and women's

tennis, and men's and women's outdoor track and field.

The announcement of this year's Dixon Trophy winner is scheduled for May 18

at the PSAC Award Luncheon in Harrisburg, Pa.
