Belmont Preserves Lead in All-Sports Race

As the winter sports seasons have come to a close, the Belmont Bruins have held onto their lead in the 2007-2008 Atlantic Sun Conference Bill Bibb Trophy Standings. The Bruins have 235.5 points following the winter seasons, and are trailed by ETSU with 199.5. Belmont also leads the men’s and women’s all-sports races. In the Jesse C. Fletcher Trophy Standings for the men’s all-sports race, Belmont sits in first with 97.5 points; the Belmont women have 138 points to lead the Sherman Day Trophy Standings for the women’s all-sports race.
Belmont has the most combined team titles of any other institution, a big reason why it leads the pack in the combined all-sports race. The Bruins most recently added a men’s basketball title to a championship list that already included men’s and women’s cross country. Belmont scored 93 points during the winter seasons, the second most in the conference. They own a 36-point lead over second-place ETSU (199.5).
