    Cardinals win Southland Conference Commissioner's Cup Trophy

    Lamar University won its first ever conference Commissioner's Cup Trophy on Monday, which is awarded to the athletics program that tallies the most points based on success in an academic year.  The honor comes on the heels of the Cardinals claiming their first Southland regular season baseball championship since 2004.  Lamar bolstered its case for the trophy with conference titles in women's basketball, soccer and cross-country.

    The men and women's programs amassed a total of 124.5 points to win the Trophy, edging McNeese State by a total of 14 points.

    Lamar Director of Athletics Jeff O'Malley expressed his excitement for the university and the community of Beaumont.

    "Graduating student-athletes and celebrating their success in the competition arena is why we're in this business. There is a lot of hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make this possible. I couldn't be prouder of our teams, coaches and staff. This is a true reflection of the dedication of the entire university, our fans and the Beaumont community. For our institution to accomplish something that has never been done before is a rewarding way to end a very special season."
