WORCESTER, Mass. – Assumption College finished sixth in the 2017-18 Northeast-10 Conference Presidents' Cup standings released earlier this week, marking the fourth consecutive year the College has placed in the top six of the conference.

"Assumption Athletics has had another impressive year in the NE10 and I could not be more proud or excited to be working with this amazing staff and student athletes," said Director of Athletics Jamie Marcoux. "The hard work and dedication of our student-athletes is clear. This is the fourth year in a row we have finished in the top six of the NE10 and we have achieved our highest point totals eac of the past two years. We will continue to strive for excellence and be among the best in the NE10 athletically, academically and in our community, and I am looking forward to 2018-2019."
