LAS CRUCES, N.M. – For the first time in school history, New Mexico State has won the Western Athletic Conference Commissioner’s Cup.

The cup is awarded annually to the school that performs the best in each of the WAC’s 19 men’s and women’s championships. For the Aggies, only 15 of their 17 sponsored sports count in the WAC standings, as football and equestrian are not WAC sponsored sports.

NM State scored 89.25 points, ahead of Seattle U. at 85.75 points and Missouri-Kansas City at 84.75 points. Utah Valley was fourth with 75.75 points.

The Aggies won WAC Championships in men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis and softball. The Aggies took both regular season and conference tournament championships in men’s and women’s basketball, men’s tennis and softball.

The Aggies also did something that hadn’t been accomplished before in the WAC. The seven WAC tournament championships were consecutive.

“The performance in the Western Athletic Conference should bring tremendous pride to our student-athletes and coaches as well as our alumni,” said NM State Director of Athletics Mario Moccia. “The 2014-15 season as also tremendous from an academic standpoint as well as in community service for all of our 450 student-athletes. We are excited to receive this award and look forward to competing for it next year.”

The Aggies scored points in women’s and men’s cross country, women’s soccer, volleyball, women’s indoor track and field, women’s outdoor track and field, women’s swimming and diving, and baseball to go with their seven championship sports.
