ORLANDO, Fla. - The South Coast Conference's Mt. San Antonio College had plenty of reasons to celebrate during this week's National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administators convention, picking up its seventh consecutive CCCAA NATYCAA Cup championship trophy, as well as lauding swimming standout Jason Harary, who was named the organization's Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The Mounties also claimed top honors in the Daktronics Cup State Associations Division title.
Mt. SAC won the CCCAA title by posting 162 points in the final tally while edging Riverside City, which finished with 159 points, and Fresno City, which took third with 152. Sierra College (146.5) led the standings after the midway point of the 2018-19 athletic year and took fourth, followed by American River (143.5), San Joaquin Delta (143.0) and SCC members El Camino (130.0) in seventh and Cerritos (113.5) in eighth.
The SCC captured five state titles this year including Mt. SAC in softball and men's cross country, Cerritos in men's soccer and women's track and field, and Los Angeles Harbor in women's cross country. State runner-ups were earned by Mt. SAC in men's track and field, El Camino in both men's cross country and baseball, Long Beach City in beach volleyball, and Pasadena City in women's badminton. LBCC won the men's volleyball state title but was hosted out by the Western State Conference.
Colleges are awarded NATYCAA points based on their teams' final positions in post-conference competition with state championships worth the most points (20). Each college's top-five men's and top-five women's team results count toward the school's overall point total.
