EDISON, N.J. – Marist College, which captured four Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) championships during the 2013-14 academic year, earned the league’s highest honor, winning the overall and women’s Academy Bus MAAC Commissioner’s Cups. The Red Foxes extended their conference record of overall Commissioner’s Cups to 12, and earned their 10th women’s cup. Marist has captured more Commissioner’s Cups than any other school in the conference.

“The ability of Marist College and Monmouth University to win Academy Bus MAAC Commissioner Cups reflects each institution’s support of NCAA Division I athletics,” MAAC Commissioner Richard J. Ensor, Esq. said.  “I compliment both of the departments’ staffs and the commitment of their coaches and student-athletes to excel.”

The Academy Bus MAAC Commissioner’s Cup is awarded annually as a symbol of overall excellence in athletics in the 25 championship athletic events conducted within the MAAC.  Each institution is scored in all championships that it fields a varsity team.  However, only the scores from the men’s and women’s basketball participation, plus the other top six men’s and other top six women’s championships are used to determine an institution’s total points.

“I am very proud of the great work of our student-athletes, coaches and administrative staff for another exceptional year,” said Marist Director of Athletics, Tim Murray. “Our athletic program continues to set a very high standard of excellence both on the athletic fields and in the classroom. This was an outstanding year for the Marist Athletics program winning our 100th MAAC Championship in February, the MAAC Pepsi Goodworks Challenge and having six head coaches recognized by the MAAC and their peers as ‘Coach of the Year’ this season.”

In addition to winning the MAAC Commissioner’s Cup for the 12th time, the Red Foxes saw much success this year. Six Marist head coaches were named the Anaconda Sports MAAC Coach of the Year, including Natalie Benson (water polo), Tom Hanna (volleyball), Matt Lavin (men’s crew), Jessica O’Brien (women’s lacrosse), Tim Smith (men’s tennis) and Larry VanWagner (swimming and diving).

Marist also won the MAAC Pepsi Goodworks Challenge for the second consecutive year. The Goodworks Challenge program is a partnership between the MAAC and Pepsi in an effort to publicize volunteer work done in the community. Marist student-athletes, coaches, and administrators took part in 65 community service events, volunteered over 6,500 hours and earned over 7,700 points in the academic year. As a result of winning, Marist received a $1,000 donation, which will be made to the Grace Smith House, Inc.

In the fall, the Marist football team won a share of the Pioneer Football League (PFL) championship and set a varsity record for wins in a season. The Red foxes finished 8-3 overall and 7-1 in PFL play. Marist graduate Terrence Fede, became the first ever Marist player to be selected in the NFL draft. Fede was drafted in the seventh round as the 234th overall pick by the Miami Dolphins. He signed with the organization on May 23, 2014.

Marist finished the overall race with a total of 132.5 points while Monmouth University finished in second place with 125.5 points. On the men’s side, Monmouth captured the top spot with 61.5 points, followed by Canisius with 56 points. Marist finished in first in the women’s cup race by compiling 85 points, 11.5 points ahead of second place finisher, Fairfield University (73.5).

The overall field finished as follows: Marist (132.5), Monmouth (125.5), Iona (125), Fairfield (120), Quinnipiac (107), Canisius (102), Siena (97), Manhattan (96.5), Rider (92), Niagara (56.5), and Saint Peter’s (54.5).
