The Profs earned the regular-season crowns in field hockey, volleyball, baseball, softball, men's swimming & diving and women's swimming & diving, and won the NJAC Championship meets in men's indoor track & field and men's outdoor track & field.
Rowan also finished second in the standings in men's basketball and baseball and had third-place finishes in women's soccer and women's basketball.
Rowan also took home the NJAC Tournament titles in field hockey, volleyball and softball, although those tournament results didn't factor into the point totals.
"The pride in winning the NJAC Cup comes from our pride in the conference, which is full of outstanding athletes and teams. To be the most successful athletic department in that elite company speaks to the high quality of Rowan University, our student-athletes and coaches," said Dr. John Giannini, director of athletics.
In the year-long competition, each full-member institution is scored based on its finish in the final regular season standings or in the championship meet (for cross country, indoor track & field, and outdoor track & field) in each of the 21 sports that are sponsored by the conference. NJAC conference tournament results, NCAA postseason results, and ECAC postseason results are not factored into the scoring.
The number of points awarded in each sport is determined by the number of conference participants in that sport. The total number of points earned by each school is divided by the total number of points possible based on a school's sport sponsorship pattern to determine a percentage. The institution with the highest percentage at the end of the academic year is awarded the NJAC Cup.
PRINCETON, NJ – Rowan University Athletics was awarded the 2021-22 NJAC Cup, the league's all-sport award recognizing overall success in competition during the year. It marks the fourth time in the five years that the NJAC Cup has been awarded that Rowan has captured the trophy.
