The Roadrunners ran away with the RMAC All-Sports Competition Cup.
For the second time in as many years, Metropolitan State College of Denver is the athletic benchmark of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
Metro State, as announced in a news release Wednesday, earned 858.5 points in the annual competition, 85 more than runner-up Adams State.
The Cup is awarded to the institution which accumulates the most points over the year based on its teams' outcomes in the conference's four core sports, along with six wild-card sports. The four core sports are football or men's soccer, men's basketball, women's basketball and volleyball. The six wild-card sports consist of three men's sports and three women's sports, which are designated by that institutions' best finish.
Total points are calculated based on how the teams finish in the RMAC regular-season standings.
Fort Lewis College finished seventh among 14 teams in this year's Cup standings with 651.5 points, 206 points behind the Roadrunners.
The FLC men's soccer team won the school's only regular-season championship this season. The Skyhawks also won the RMAC Tournament for the fourth consecutive season.
Metro State won RMAC regular-season championships in men's basketball, women's soccer, softball and men's tennis this season. It qualified for the NCAA postseason in volleyball, men's and women's soccer, men's tennis, men's basketball and softball.
This year featured three new changes to the Cup: regular-season standings were used instead of RMAC Tournament standings; the point system was revised; six wild-card spots were used instead of four.
With four seasons yet to be finished - outdoor track and field, softball, tennis and baseball - Adams State is the only program to win a NCAA championship this season. The renowned running programs won both the men's and women's cross country titles in November.
Metro State will receive the Cup during the RMAC Centennial Celebration on July 11 at Colorado Springs.
