AUK Crowned UCC Champion for the 5th Time

After 94 matches, stretched across 15 weeks of intercollegiate competition, the 6th University Championship Cup (UCC) has come to a close with the American University of Kuwait (AUK) on top. AUK is being crowned champion of this tournament for the fifth year now.

The UCC Champion is determined by the number of points earned in each sport and awarded to the university with the highest total number of points. To become the champion of the UCC, an institution must excel in multiple sports. UCC 2011-2012 offered athletic competition for seven different sports, with each having a male and a female league.

This year, student-athletes participating in the UCC had the opportunity to compete in soccer, basketball, volleyball, tennis, squash, table tennis, and swimming. Each sport had a seasonal competition, followed by a play-off phase. Points were awarded based on a university's rank at the end of the season and their end results in the play-offs. As UCC 2011-2012 entered its playoff phase; AUK was favored to win the overall competition. This year marks a special achievement in that AUK earned an unprecedented number of points; 14 points ahead of the closest ranking institution.

AUK won first place in the playoffs of the following sports: women's soccer, men's and women's tennis, men's and women's squash, and women's table tennis. AUK placed second in the playoffs of the following sports: men's and women's basketball, and men's volleyball. Congratulations to all the AUK student-athletes and special thanks to everyone that came out to support AUK Athletics.
