HEART OF AMERICA ATHLETIC CONFERENCE

Commissioner's Cup

ABOUT THE COMMISSIONER'S CUP

The award, which will be presented by Commissioner Lori Thomas to one member institution annually, will serve as a symbol of athletic excellence in conference-sponsored championships.

Thomas will award the winning program with the Commissioner’s Cup trophy at the 2022 Heart Summit on Monday, August 1, 2022 in Olathe, Kansas.

The 14 Heart schools earn points throughout the season contributing to the Commissioner’s Cup for their finish in the 23 Heart sponsored sports of: men’s cross country, women’s cross country, women’s volleyball, football, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, women’s basketball, men’s basketball, men’s indoor track & field, women’s indoor track & field, men’s volleyball, men’s wrestling, women’s wrestling, cheer, dance, men’s bowling, women’s bowling, baseball, softball, men’s golf, women’s golf, men’s outdoor track & field and women’s track & field.

Each conference regular season champion for the following sports earned a maximum amount of points based on the amount of teams participating in that sport. Then that number is divided by the amount of teams participating in that sport:

Women’s volleyball, football, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, women’s basketball, men’s basketball, men’s volleyball, baseball and softball.

For example: Women’s Soccer Regular Season, Central Methodist earned 13 points out of 13 teams competing.

13/13 = 1.00 – Percentage (First Place)

12/13 = .92 – Percentage (Second Place)

The same formula was put in place for the following sports and finishes by the Heart teams in the Heart Conference Championships:

Men’s cross country, women’s cross country, men’s indoor track & field, women’s indoor track & field, men’s wrestling, women’s wrestling, cheer, dance, men’s bowling, women’s bowling, men’s golf, women’s golf, men’s outdoor track & field and women’s outdoor track & field.

For example: Cheer Heart Conference Champion, Missouri Valley earned 8 points out of 8 teams competing.

8/8 = 1.00 – Percentage (First Place)

7/8 = .87 – Percentage (Second Place)

To compile the final list of the 2021-22 Heart Commissioner’s Cup Standings, each team’s percentage in each sport they compete in was added up and divided by the amount of total sports they compete in. Final results are an average cumulative Heart finish for each institution in every conference sport that they sponsor.

Here is a look at the 2021-22 Heart Commissioners Cup Standings:
