Whitworth Leads the Race for the All-Sports Trophy

Forest Grove, Ore. - Whitworth University takes over lead in the Northwest Conference for the 2012-13 McIlroy-Lewis All-Sports trophy after the conclusion of the winter season.

The Pirates earned three NWC championships this winter season, taking home titles in men's basketball, men's swimming and women's swimming to bring their point total to 143.

The University of Puget Sound lands the number two spot with 119 points as the runner-up at the women's swimming championship, while Whitman College is third on the list with 109 points and three second-place team finishes.

Lewis & Clark College and Pacific Lutheran University each totaled 101 points through the winter season, while the Pioneers captured the NWC women's basketball title. 

Willamette University (89 pts.), Pacific University (89 pts.), Linfield College (85 pts.) and George Fox University (53) round out the final spots in the McIlroy-Lewis All-Sports trophy standings.

The Northwest Conference All-Sports Trophy recognizes athletic excellence among Northwest Conference institutions across all fields of competition. It is named in honor of John Lewis, the baseball coach (1947-72), basketball coach (1947-67) and athletics director (1952- 72) at Willamette University; and Jane McIlroy, Linfield College's women's athletics director and physical education professor from 1950- 82 who also coached field hockey (1952-81), basketball, volleyball, softball and tennis.
