NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) has released the final Alfred R. Restaino, Sr. Cup standings for the 2017-18 season.
The point system used for the award takes into account each athletic program's finish in both the 2017-18 CACC regular season contests and conference tournaments. Each institution receives a combined point total and the sum is then divided by the number of sports the institution sponsors.
The University of the Sciences men end the year in 13th place with an average of 7.13 points.
Wilmington claimed its ninth consecutive Restaino Cup with an average of 11.67 points, beating out second place Bloomfield (11.15). Jefferson (10.43), Georgian Court (10.40) and Post (10.03) rounded out the top five.
Closing out the Devils' point total in the spring were track and field, tennis and baseball.

Also earning points at the Championships was William Hallinan, who placed sixth in the 1500m and was part of the 4x400m relay team with Eric Papazian, Christopher Cardace and Ryan Ward that earned a point.
