WESTWOOD, Mass.—Following a year that included three regular season titles and one conference tournament crown, Babson College finished fourth when the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) announced its final Presidents Cup women's standings on Tuesday afternoon.

The Presidents Cup is an all-sports award presented to the top overall men's and women's programs in the conference and is determined using a weighted points system based on the order of finish during both the regular season and championship play.

The Beavers averaged 7.78 points across 10 sports to record its highest point total in seven years since the inception of the Presidents Cup in 2013. MIT came in first for the fourth year in a row with a 10.13 average, while Springfield College (8.37 points) and WPI (8.01) placed third and fourth, respectively.

Basketball and field hockey both captured their fourth consecutive regular season titles, lacrosse claimed its second straight, and volleyball followed a third-place finish during the regular season by capturing its third NEWMAC Tournament crown in the last five seasons. Tennis reached its second consecutive league tournament final, while both cross country and swimming & diving posted their highest finishes since 2012 at their respective conference meets.
