Trevecca Nazarene University

Trevecca ranks 2nd in TranSouth All-Sports Trophy competition

When the TranSouth Athletic Conference announced the winners for the TranSouth Athletic Conference All-Sports Trophy competition, for the first time in school history Trevecca Nazarene University was ranked second.

Union University captured the All-Sports Trophy with a 4.722 average with Trevecca close behind with a 4.389 average.

Trevecca's totals included four regular season titles or co-titles. This year was the first time a Trevecca team had won a conference title since joining the TranSouth in its inaugural year during the 1996-97 athletic season. The last time a Trevecca team had won a regular season title was in 1989 when the school was in the Tennessee Collegiate Athletic Conference.

Freed-Hardeman University finished third at 3.615, Martin Methodist College finished fourth at 3.350, Cumberland finished fifth at 3.346, and Lyon finished sixth at 3.300.

This award is based on a point system that awards each school for its finishes in each of the possible thirteen TranSouth-sponsored sports. Each team earns points for its finishing positions, the higher the finish, the more points the school earns. The totals are then divided by the number of sports in which the school participated. Sports must have at least four school-sponsored teams in order for that sport to count toward the total.
