Boise State Wins WAC Commissioner's Cup

Boise State has officially won the WAC Commissioner's Cup. With Hawai'i's win in the WAC baseball tournament, all results are complete and Boise State has finished first with 92.25 points to 83.75 for Fresno State.

Boise State has officially been crowned with the Commissioner's Cup from the Western Athletic Conference. The Broncos, which clinched the Cup two weeks ago with outstanding results in outdoor track and field and softball, win their second Commissioner's Cup in five years.

Boise State totaled 92.25 points to 83.75 points for Fresno State. New Mexico State was third with 80.75 points to 76.50 for Nevada while Utah State was fifth with 74 points. Hawai'i utilized a WAC Championship in baseball to move into sixth place with 68.50 while Idaho was seventh with 63 points, Louisiana Tech eighth with 57.50 and San Jose State last with 51.75.

Bronco teams were consistently good this year in winning conference championships in football, soccer, swimming and diving and women's tennis. They also finished second in both men's indoor and outdoor track, second in gymnastics, third in men's tennis, third in men's cross country, tied for third in volleyball and third in softball.

Athletic Director Gene Bleymaier also guided Boise State to the Commissioner's Cup in 2005-06, when they set a school record with 96.50 points. Boise State's winning margin of 8.50 points was the largest since former member Rice won by nine points in 2004-05.

New Mexico State enjoyed its finest year since joining the WAC prior to the 2005 season. The Aggies were last in the Cup that year with 73.50 points.

Congratulations to Boise State—the 2009-10 WAC Commissioner's Cup Champions!
