Charleston, WV - The University of Charleston has won the annual Mountain East Conference Commissioner’s Cup, the league announced Tuesday. It marks the fourth Commissioner’s Cup for UC since the league began in 2013-14.

The award recognizes overall athletic excellence among its membership each year.

Charleston finished atop the standings with an All-Sports rating of 0.87195. The Golden Eagles won conference championships in men’s and women’s golf, men’s cross country, men’s soccer, baseball and men’s track.
