After a strong fall season in which the men’s soccer and cross country teams, and the women’s soccer, volleyball and cross country all exceeded, Wilmington University is in the top five of the first 2011-12 Restaino Cup Standings in both the men and women’s standings.

The Alfred R. Restaino, Sr. Cup (formerly called the Commissioner's Cup) is an annual award given to the CACC men's and women's athletic programs that perform the best across the board in conference competition. The point system used for the award takes into account each team's finish in both the CACC regular-season and conference tournament. Each school receives a combined point total, and that total is divided by the number of sports that the institution sponsors.

The men currently sit in second place with 11.75 points after earning a No. 2 seed in the CACC Tournament and running to a third place finish in the men’s cross country championship.

The Lady Wildcats are fourth out of 14 teams after the fall season thanks in large part to a second place team finish in the CACC women’s cross country championships. The women also picked up points from the volleyball team for finishing second in the South Division and rounding out the season in the CACC Tournament Semifinals. The soccer team added to the fourth place finish with four points from the regular season.

The award is named after Alfred R. Restaino, Sr., who served the CACC for over 34 years as an athletic administrator and coach. Prior to that, he distinguished himself as a student-athlete at CACC-member Bloomfield College. His dedication and vision helped to forge the CACC as it is today.
