Edmonds CC wins 2015 Maury Ray Athletic Director’s Cup
The Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) recently named Edmonds College as one of the winners of the 2015 Athletic Director’s Cup (the Dr. Maury Ray Cup), at the annual Hall of Fame banquet and awards dinner on June 4.
“We are very pleased to have won this award,” said Jorge de la Torre, Edmonds CC Athletic Director.
Edmonds CC was awarded a cup in the Dick McClain division. Cups are awarded to winners of two divisions — Frank Bosone division for large schools offering eight to fifteen sports, and the Dick McClain division for small schools with seven or fewer sports.
The Athletic Director’s Cup is given by the NWAC, to the school that performs the best in each of the conference’s 15 men’s and women’s championships. Points are awarded in order of finish equal to the number of teams that participate in each sport, and are averaged between a team’s regular season finish and it NWAC championship finish.
Edmonds CC won three North Region titles in 2014-2015, with four of its seven sports advancing to the postseason. Men’s basketball placed second at the NWAC tournament, while men’s soccer and baseball both took third.
“Its gratifying to see all of the hard work put in by coaches and student-athletes pay off. I think this is just the start and I hope to see the Cup reside at Edmonds for a long time.”
Edmonds CC offers men’s baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s soccer, women’s softball, and women’s volleyball.
