NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Thomas Jefferson University claimed the 2019-20 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Alfred R. Restaino, Sr., Cup for Women's Sports following an impressive showing during the fall and winter seasons of the 2019-20 campaign. The announcement of the all-sports trophy for women's sports was made on Monday by CACC Commissioner Dan Mara. The Rams finished with an average score of 12.4500 points to bring the trophy back to the city of Philadelphia.
The Rams used a trio of CACC titles during the fall and winter seasons to lock up the trophy. Jefferson celebrated conference championships in women's cross country, women's soccer and women's basketball. It is the Rams' eighth Restaino Cup, all on the women's side (2006-07, 2008-09, 2009-10, 2013-14, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2019-20).
Georgian Court University finished second in the standings with a score 11.2500, while Holy Family University rounded out the top three of the standings with an average mark of 10.1000.
The point system used for the award takes into account each athletic program's finish in both the 2019-20 CACC regular season contests and conference tournaments. Each institution receives a combined point total and the sum is then divided by the number of sports the institution sponsors. The award is named after the late Bloomfield College Director of Athletics and Head Coach Alfred R. Restaino, Sr., who served a vital role in not just the school's athletic department but also in the enhancement of the CACC.
The women's Restaino Cup this year was based off of just the fall and winter results, as the 2020 spring season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
