For the third straight year, Lancaster Bible College has been named the top overall school in the conference and is the winner of the President’s Cup. The winner of the President’s Cup is determined by utilizing the core values of NCAA Division III. In addition to calculating athletics success, which was the only factor taken into consideration when awarding the conference’s Presidents’ Cup in the past, the NEAC now also takes into account academics, sportsmanship and community service.
The Chargers also earned the Faculty Athletic Representatives’ Cup for Academics for the third year in a row, a component of the NEAC President’s Cup. The conference determines four individual cup winners in academics, athletics, sportsmanship and community service to encompass the NCAA Division III philosophy.
“I’m thankful for the commitment of our athletic director, Pete Beers, the athletic staff and all of our coaches for their role in winning the NEAC Presidents’ Cup and Faculty Athletic Representatives’ Cup for the third-straight year,” said Dr. Peter W. Teague, president of Lancaster Bible College. “They are consistently pouring into our student athletes, and it shows on a day-to-day basis.”
