Townsend Trophy, Park University - William Jewell College
Purpose: To invigorate the spirit of character and image through competition, enhancing the vibrant rivalry between two upstanding, liberal arts institutions in Kansas City's Northland: Park University and William Jewell College. Each school's intercollegiate sports teams will be assigned points corresponding to a system. Three points are available in each sport in which the schools compete during an academic year: women's soccer, men's soccer, women's volleyball, men's basketball, men's cross country, women's cross country, baseball, softball, indoor and outdoor men's track, indoor and outdoor women's track and women's golf. One bonus point will be awarded for the winner of postseason matchups in sports competing head-to-head; one-half bonus point will be awarded for the winner of postseason matchups in sports competing as individuals or teams among a field of institutions.
Three points will be divided by the number of regular season matchups in an eligible sport. For example, if William Jewell and Park split in men's basketball, William Jewell earns +1.5 and Park earns +1.5.
One bonus point will be awarded for head-to-head post-season matchups. If, for example, Park defeated William Jewell in women's soccer during the regular season, Park would earn +3. If the two teams met at the NAIA National Championship Tournament and William Jewell defeated Park, William Jewell would earn a post-season bonus of +1.
Ties: If William Jewell and Park tie in any event, the points for that event will be divided evenly between the two schools. If Park and William Jewell tie in men's soccer, for example, Park would earn +1.5 point and William Jewell would earn +1.5 point. Post-season bonuses are only applied if both Park and William Jewell compete in the championship event.
If the schools are tied at the end of the season, the following tie-breaker will be applied: the cumulative GPA of all varsity student-athletes on rosters of eligible sports for the year in question will be calculated on a flat 4.00 scale (with no consideration of honors enrollments). The program with the higher cumulative GPA according to this standard will be awarded the Townsend Trophy.
Specific notes for eligible sports
Three points are available for the winner of head-to-head regular season competition. If the match ends in a tie, the points are divided equally. If the teams meet in the post-season, each postseason matchup is valued at one point.
Basketball, Volleyball, Baseball, Softball
Three points are available for the winner of head-to-head regular season competition. If teams play twice, each game is valued at 1.5 points. If teams meet three times, each game is valued at one point. If teams meet in the post-season, each postseason matchup is valued at one point. For baseball and softball, events ending in a tie will result in the equal allocation of the points available for that contest.
Indoor and Outdoor Track, Cross Country and Women's Golf
Three points are available for each regular season, provided William Jewell and Park meet at least once during the season at a "team scored" event. If a school sponsors an individual to an event but does not compete as a team, while the other school competes as a team, the school competing as a team will be awarded the points for that event. If both schools compete only with individuals, the event will not be counted for the Townsend Trophy. Post-season meetings between the schools, provided at least one school is scored as a team, will be counted as +.5 bonus points.
