2003-2004 CUNY Athletic Conference Commissioner's Cup Point Standings  

Hunter Holds Cup For 6th Time In Seven Seasons

Hunter College was presented with the Commissionerís Cup for the sixth time in seven years at the 2004 CUNYAC Scholar-Athlete Award Ceremony, as the most successful Senior College athletic program for the 2003-04 academic year. The Hawks were followed once again by the College of Staten Island, who finished thirty points behind. CSI and Hunter have finished 1-2 in the final yearly points race each of the last seven years, with the roles reversed only once (following the 2000-01 season).

This year, Hunter captured nine of CUNYACís 18 senior college tournament championships (womenís tennis, menís cross country, womenís cross country, womenís swimming and diving, womenís basketball, menís indoor track and field, menís volleyball, womenís outdoor track and field and menís outdoor track and field). Staten Island won three CUNYAC tournaments and five regular season titles, easily outdistancing John Jay College for second place. Interestingly, John Jay managed a third-place Commissionerís Cup standing benefiting only from one title, in menís basketball for the regular- season, among a bevy of second and third place points in eight additional sports.

It was also a year of firsts for NCAA Tournament appearances for three schools. In the five sports that earned CUNYAC teams an NCAA berth, four were first-timers. On the heels of the Hawks third consecutive womenís basketball crown, Hunter was the exception there. But the CSI softball and Lehman menís basketball teams were able to play on the National Stage for the first time, despite having storied programs at the respective schools. CCNY, the oldest school in the CUNY system had the initial pleasure of competing in NCAAís in two sports Ė womenís volleyball and menís soccer.

Community Colleges
BMCC & HOSTOS Share CUNYACís Top School Honor

Unlike the senior college Commissionerís Cup competition, it was a surprise to see newcomer Hostos Community College share the cup with Borough of Manhattan Community College, while Queensborough and Bronx Community College were only five points behind. The two latter schools shared the award last year. Hostos, with the fewest sports on the slate (3), won both the menís and womenís basketball championships to earn their stake, while BMCC won the Cup for the sixth time behind a womenís volleyball title and runner-up finishes in menís soccer and womenís basketball.

Following Hostosí two CUNYAC Championships, both basketball teams reached the NJCAA Region XV playoffs. Remarkably, the teams reached the region semifinals during the womenís first season and the menís second season as varsity programs. Queensboroughís spring was quite fruitful as well with the Tigersí baseball and softball teams also entering the Region XV tournaments, and the softballers reaching the final game, leaving them one win shy of a berth in the National eight-team tournament.

On the All-American front, 26 CUNYAC athletes earned the prestigious honor, including Kingsboroughís top tennis duo, who reached the championship match at the National Junior College Tournament and the menís 4x400 Meter Relay team that won the National title at NJCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship. As a team, Kingsborough led the two other CUNYAC colleges at that event with a seventh place menís finish. At the NCJAA Outdoors, a whopping 20 community college student-athletes earned all-american accolades.
