West Chester Wins 2017–18 Dixon Trophy

West Chester University Dixon Trophy winner 2018

West Chester University has been named the top program in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC), and is the winner of the 2017-18 Dixon Trophy. This is the fourth time that WCU has won the award in the past six years.

The PSAC awards the Dixon Trophy annually to the institution that accumulates the top score based on results of conference playoffs and/or regular-season records. Each sport champion earns 18 points based on the league's membership total and descending point values are awarded for respective placement.

WCU dominated on both sides of the coin all season after producing an overall average of 13.75. WCU claimed team titles in women’s lacrosse, men’s and women’s swimming, and field hockey. The Golden Rams appeared in the title game in football and softball while finishing second as a team in women’s golf. The Golden Rams women produced an astonishing average of 15.88 points.

The trophy is named in honor of F. Eugene Dixon, Jr., former chairman of the Board of Governors of Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education.
WCU is second only to Slippery Rock in number of trophies won.
