For the third year in a row, the Wilmington University men’s teams have won the 2011-12 Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference Alfred R. Restaino Sr. Cup in an announcement made by the CACC Commissioner Dan Mara. The Wildcat women finished seventh and in the top half of the conference for the fifth consecutive season.

The cups are given annually to the institutions that perform best across-the-board in CACC-sponsored sports.  The point system used for the award takes into account each athletic program’s finish in both the CACC regular-season and conference tournament.  Each school receives a combined point total and that total is then divided by the number of sports the institution sponsors.

The men were led by the golf and baseball squads, as each won their respective CACC Tournaments. The golf team captured its second straight CACC Championship and went on to win the NCAA Division II East/Atlantic Super Regional, placing 17th at the NCAA Division II National Tournament.

The baseball team also won its second consecutive CACC Tournament by running through the tournament undefeated and beating Felician 1-0 at Frawley Stadium. The Wildcats also earned major points by placing second in the standings during the regular season.

The men’s soccer team contributed the second most points among the CACC by placing second in the regular season, finishing its year with a 8-7-4 overall record. The men’s cross country team earned 12 points towards the Restaino Cup by finishing third in the CACC Championship. The men’s basketball team rounded out the Wildcat scoring with 7.5 points, giving Wilmington 58.5 points in five sports.

The women placed seventh out of 14 teams, marking it the fifth straight year they finished in the top half of the league.

The Lady Wildcats were led by the cross country squad who placed second overall, earning 13 points towards their Restaino Cup score. Volleyball earned the third seed in the South Division for the CACC Tournament, giving Wilmington 11.5 points. Lacrosse and softball each finished fourth in the CACC regular season, aiding in the team’s 53.25 points.

Dominican College (11.46 total points) took home the women’s cup for the second consecutive year as it claimed the 2012 CACC Softball Championship, advanced to the conference semifinals in both women’s basketball and women’s soccer, a quarterfinal finish in volleyball and a third-place showing at the 2011 Women’s Cross Country Championship.

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.
