GC Athletics Finishes Fifth in PBC Commissioner’s Cup
HILTON HEAD, S.C. – On the strength of great finishes in the spring, the Georgia College Department of Athletics took fifth place among 13 schools in the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Commissioner’s Cup Standings, announced recently.
The Bobcats earned a .553 rating, earning its highest point values in softball, women’s tennis, women’s cross country and men’s tennis.
Armstrong took the trophy for the third-straight season, followed by Columbus State University. Clayton State University was third, with USC Aiken coming in one spot ahead of the Bobcats.
The Bobcats were back-to-back winners of the cup in 2008-09 and 2009-10. Point values are based on possible regular-season finish, except in cross country and golf, where they factor in the PBC Tournament finish.
