Stags Win MAAC Women's Commissioner's Cup, Place Second in Overall Standings

Fairfield Women's Basketball celebrates MAAC Tournament and Regular Season Championships in 2021-22

Fairfield has won the women’s trophy for the second time in three years.

For the second time in three years, Fairfield University Athletics has claimed the MAAC Women's Commissioner's Cup. The Stags also finished second in the overall cup standings for the second straight season, and placed fifth on the men's ledger.

Fairfield won three women's MAAC Championships in the 2021-22 season: volleyball, women's basketball, and women's lacrosse. The volleyball and women's basketball teams also claimed MAAC regular season titles.

"We are very proud to have earned the MAAC Women's Commissioner's Cup for the second time in three years. This award is a department honor and a testament to the culture of excellence and championship mindset established and fostered by all of our student-athletes, coaches, and staff," said Director of Athletics Paul Schlickmann. "While we were led by the trio of MAAC Champions in volleyball, women's basketball, and women's lacrosse, our field hockey team was the fourth women's program to achieve a conference crown as regular season and tournament champions of the NEC. All four of these programs also competed at a high level in the NCAA postseason, and continue to reset the bar and raise the competitive standard in our department."

The Stags also scored Commissioner's Cup points in women's tennis following a trip to the MAAC Championship match, in softball for a second place regular season finish, in women's soccer after advancing to the tournament semifinals, and in women's swimming and diving for a third-place performance at the MAAC Championships.

In the overall standings, where Fairfield was clipped by Monmouth by less than seven points, the Stags also got major contributions from the baseball team's MAAC regular-season title and from a second-place finish for men's swimming and diving — the best showing at the conference meet in program history.

In addition to their second MAAC Women's Commissioner's Cup in three years, Fairfield has now earned that honor 10 times in program history. The Stags have also won four overall MAAC Commissioner's Cups and three Men's Commissioner's Cups, both most recently in 2011-12.
