Daemen College has been awarded a share of the Indy Cup — the all-sports trophy for the Independent Collegiate Athletic Association for 2012-13. Daemen amassed 47 points in the Indy Cup standings — 15 from mandatory sports (men’s and women’s basketball and men’s soccer) and 22 from “at-large” sports to tie Palm Beach Atlantic (Fla.) atop the leaderboard. Oakland City (Ind.) finished third with 46 points.
Daemen will leave the ICAA after only one year of membership to become a member of the NCAA Division II East Coasts Conference.

Morgan earned Defensive Player of the Week after she came up with five ground balls, caused four turnovers and scored four goals in the same game.
