SPOKANE, Wash. – Eight sounds great for the Whitworth University athletics department.

The Pirates claimed their eighth consecutive Northwest Conference McIlroy-Lewis All-Sports trophy in 2014-15. Whitworth earned seven NWC team titles to roll to a margin of victory of over 50 points ahead of runner-up Puget Sound.

The Pirates finished with 268 points after winning NWC championships in volleyball (tie), men's soccer, men's basketball, softball, men's golf, women's track and field and men's track and field. The titles in men's basketball and men's track were the sixth in a row for each team.

Whitworth added runner-up finishes in women's cross country, men's swimming and baseball (tie). The Bucs added third-place finishes in women's swimming, women's basketball and women's golf.

Whitworth earned its eighth McIlroy-Lewis title in a row, and ninth overall. Only Pacific Lutheran (15) has won more All-Sports trophies in the history of the league.

The Northwest Conference All-Sports Trophy recognizes athletic excellence among conference institutions across all fields of competition. It is named in honor of John Lewis, the baseball coach (1947-72), basketball coach (1947-67) and athletics director (1952- 72) at Willamette University; and Jane McIlroy, Linfield College's women's athletics director and physical education professor from 1950- 82 who also coached field hockey (1952-81), basketball, volleyball, softball and tennis.
