Columbia College Athletics secured its sixth consecutive American Midwest Conference (AMC) Presidents’ Cup in May. The AMC Presidents’ Cup is awarded to the institution that accumulates the most points, determined by final regular season standings or results from AMC Championships (cross country, wrestling, golf and track & field) in the conference’s 16 championship sports.
The Cougars finished with 612.5 points in 2022-23, edging second-place Missouri Baptist by 17.5 points. The impressive final tally was the most by an AMC Presidents’ Cup winner since 2018-19, as Columbia College racked up a staggering 750 points over that athletic calendar campaign.
Columbia College opens its 2023-24 athletic calendar on Friday, Aug. 18, with volleyball competing in Bourbonnais, Illinois, at the Olivet Nazarene University Tournament. Both women’s and men’s soccer kick off their campaigns on Wednesday, Aug. 22, with home matches at R. Marvin Owens Field. The men’s and women’s cross country teams each travel to Nevada, Missouri, on Friday, Sept. 8, for their season-opening meet at the Cottey Invite.
Cougars men’s golf opens its slate on Sunday, Sept. 10, in Sunrise Beach, Missouri, at the Lincoln University Invitational. Women’s golf begins its schedule a week later on Sunday, Sept. 17, at the William Woods Fall Invitational in Fulton, Missouri. Bowling begins play at the Mid-States Championships in Wichita, Kansas, from Oct. 21-22.
