Grand View University has won the Commissioner’s Cup trophy as the all-sports champion of the Midwest Collegiate Conference. The Viking’s swept the men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track and field titles and also captured championships in men’s soccer and men’s golf.
Grand View athletic director Troy Plummer says the award is a reflection of the entire department as he says they try to make sure the athletes have a “really good experience.” He says part of that experience is having success on the field or court.
Plummer says all of the sports programs at Grand View support one another. He says each of the students enjoy the success of the other programs and that’s something they work on among coaches. Plummer says it’s nice to have a good group of coaches who root for each other.
It is the second straight All-Sports title for the school. Plummer says they finished second or third a number of years before winning last year and he says the league is very competitive when it comes to the all-sports champion.
St. Ambrose finished second in the standings. Mount Mercy was third.
