Mount Olive Takes Lead In Conference Carolinas Hawn Cup Standings
On the strength of two conference championships, a regular season title and a championship game appearance vaulted University of Mount Olive into first place in the 2013-14 Conference Carolinas Joby Hawn Cup standings. The Trojans are also in first place in the Men's Sports Hawn Cup standings.
The Hawn Cup awards overall athletics excellence in conference-sponsored sports. Rankings are determined by a formula based on regular season and conference tournament finishes in conference sports sponsored by each school.
Mount Olive won both the 2014 Conference Carolinas Men's and Women's Indoor Track and Field Championships. The Trojans also won a share of the men's basketball regular season title. The UMO women's basketball team won points for a third-place finish in the regular season standings and a runner-up finish in the conference tournament.
Mount Olive swept the Hawn Cup awards in 2011-12, winning both the Men's and Women's Sports Hawn Cup, along with the overall Hawn Cup.
This year's winners will be announced in late April or early May, after the conclusion of the spring sports conference championships.
