BYU has won its fifth-consecutive West Coast Conference Commissioner’s Cup since joining the league six years ago.

The school announced the win Thursday, with trophies and the cup presented to BYU officials Wednesday at the WCC Honors Dinner held in Redondo Beach, California.

The men’s all-sport, women’s all-sport and overall cup (all of which BYU won) represents points awarded throughout the year for conference titles and how schools finish in the standings.

In 2016-17, BYU won outright West Coast Conference championships in men’s cross country, men’s and women’s golf, softball and volleyball, and also shared titles in women’s soccer and baseball.

BYU won the overall cup with 105.5 points. Gonzaga took second 81.5. The school says that’s the largest margin of victory in the cup’s history.

BYU men edged Saint Mary’s 44.5 to 37 to win the men’s all-sport award.

The women won their trophy with 61 points to Gonzaga’s 50.5.
