Congrats to the Bama State Womens Tennis team.

Bama St and JSU are the frontrunners for the commish cup and I do believe it will come down to the wire in May. PV may be 3 or 4 at the moment.

Hence why I said that it's a 2 school race between JSU and Bama St exclusively.

Yep. Bama will win. The team with the best track program always will lol. Indoor, outdoor, cross country is hard to compete against. Unless y'all knock them off in a couple of those events lol

PVAMU built that new state of the art t&f venue, surely they had some semblance of desire to be dominant in t&f. Hopefully it will work out well and PVAMU brings it home. Otherwise, we know the drill lol. Bama St all day every day in M&W t&f lol.

You didn't do basketball men and women nor volleyball
Those points for those sports are already calculated in. The ones I listed are the ones that are left to be had and my predictions on who will have them.

The worst facility for sports in or around Alabama State campus is the track ironically.

Don't let him fool you about this...


It also serves as the practice facility for the Alabama State track and field programs.
The all-weather eight-lane track surrounding the football field has been the catalyst behind the championship program. Hornet Stadium also features a long jump and high jump pit, the ability for steeplechase, and has hosted several local track meets.

The track has unrepaired divots. The football team walks across the track to get to practice in cleats. They try to make them stay on the wood planks

Swac.org currently has the Commisioners Cup standings as PV #1 with 85 pts, ASU #2 with 80, and JSU #3 with 79.5. Now I'm not sure when that was last updated. Baseball will hurt us. This is the year PV sweeps T&F! 😁
