COC Athletics Wins First Conference ‘Supremacy Award’
The College of the Canyons Athletics Department has won its first-ever Western State Conference (WSC) Supremacy Award for the collective performance of its sports program during the 2013-14 academic year.
With the award, College of the Canyons unseated the 14-time defending champion Ventura College.
In 2013-14, the Cougars took home WSC championships in women’s volleyball, men’s cross country, women’s soccer, men’s track & field, men’s golf, and a co-championship in softball.
“It was a historic year for COC Athletics,” said College of the Canyons Athletic Director Chuck Lyon. “Congratulations to all of our dedicated coaches and hardworking student-athletes on their continued success.”
The Western State Conference Supremacy Award was established during the 1980-81 academic year. As part of the award competition, teams earn points throughout the season based on their conference rankings and post-season performances.
In 2013-14, College of the Canyons achieved the highest overall point total (109), while also garnering the highest women’s sports score in the conference (55).
College of the Canyons is just the ninth school to win the award since its inception.
