The Cleveland State Vikings brought home the Horizon League's top honor.
CSU wins the James J. McCafferty Trophy, which is presented annually by the Horizon League in recognition of the league's all-sport champion. The award was presented by the Horizon League office on Tuesday at the league's spring meetings in Chicago.
This marks the second McCafferty Trophy for CSU, which also claimed the award at the end of the 2007-08 season. The Vikings won four league titles.
CSU finished the year with 45 points, four points ahead of Loyola which was second with 41 points. Milwaukee finished third with 39.5 points and with UIC finishing fourth with 36.5 points. Detroit was fifth with 36 points with Valparaiso (35 points), Youngstown State (28), Green Bay (22) and Wright State (16) rounding out the standings.
The Vikings earned 26 of their 45 overall points in the men's sports to claim the Men's All-Sports Award. CSU earned seven points in men's soccer, men's swimming and diving and men's tennis and five points in men's golf.
The 19 points on the women's side came from five sports with CSU finishing fourth in the Women's All Sports Award. Volleyball tallied seven points with women's swimming and diving earning five. Women's golf scored three points, while women's tennis tallied 2.5 points and softball recorded the final 1.5 points.
Handed out every year since 1979-80, the McCafferty Trophy is named after James J. McCafferty, the former Xavier University men's basketball coach and athletics director who served as the league's commissioner.
