    June 1, 2000

    PHILADELPHIA, PA - Virginia Tech won its second straight Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Cup. The Hokies also earned the men's championship for the fourth time in as many years while Massachusetts took home the women's trophy for the fourth year in a row.

    In all, Virginia Tech shared two regular season titles and won eight tournament crowns in amassing 161.5 points. The Hokies ended the women's lacrosse season in a three-way tie with Massachusetts and Temple for first place, and tied George Washington for the Atlantic 10's best baseball record. Virginia Tech also won tournament championships in baseball, men's and women's swimming & diving, men's and women's tennis, men's indoor track & field, and men's and women's outdoor track & field. Their 80.5 men's points are an Atlantic 10 record and their 81.0 women's points were second to Massachusetts.

    Tech will be leaving the Atlantic 10 Conference and joining the Big East beginning this fall in all sports except wrestling, which competes in the Eastern Wrestling League.
