Correct, I misread the winner's list
You are correct. I was looking at the list of winners and didn't realize that this years win wasn't yet on the list, and this was our 2nd win in a row for the Cup.
Regardless of one's position on how well Fee did his job, I think it's clear that the Athletic Department is currently in the most difficult position it's been in in quite a long time.
We also won last year in his final season, I say this as no fan of Fee, but give him his due.
It does? The last time Long Beach won a Commissionerís cup was the year immediately before Fee arrived, and this one was in the first year after he left (yes, there were two years where no winner was named due to Covid.)
It also shows that Mr Fee did a damn good job while he was here.
With the Softball title (a 60 point swing in points with the Beach sweep over Fullerton), A dominating title in women's T&F which is a 10 team sport, and a 2nd (missing a title by 0.02 seconds no less) in Men's Track & Field. Beach will win the Commie Cup. Even an 8th place finish in baseball and a Fullerton or SB or Irvine title in Baseball won't change things.
goes to show maybe u don't need a permanent AD to succeed in sports
5 titles in the spring, and 3 2nds.
also, point system is still poorly constructed, that a top 5 ranked team in MVB only gets 80 points or that Beach/Hawaii only get 120 points and being final 4 teams. the league should revisit the 6 & 7 team sports points
