The PACWEST Aggregate Championship Trophy is awarded each year to the institution with the most accumulated points by each of the teams they field over the course of the competitive season.
Points are determined by the number of teams in a selected sport. For example there are seven teams playing in women’s basketball. The institution that finishes in first place during the regular season receives seven points. The second place team receives six points and so on. The institution that finishes with the PACWEST gold medal receives six additional points, followed by four points for the silver medalists and two for the bronze.
The points for each of the sports the PACWEST currently competes in, basketball, volleyball, soccer and golf are then combined to give an institution a total amount of points.
For the 11th straight year, the winner of the Aggregate Trophy is the Vancouver Island University (VIU) Mariners. VIU competed in seven PACWEST sports and collected 62 points.
The Mariners received first place points in both women’s volleyball and soccer along with men's basketball. They received second place points in men's volleyball and scored third place points in women’s basketball. The Mariners also picked up points in men’s golf.
During the PACWEST Provincials the Mariners scored points in women’s and men’s basketball and volleyball along with women’s soccer.
The Douglas College Royals scored the second highest point total this season, collecting 50 total points, with the Capilano University Blues finishing third.
