On Sunday evening at the Commons Ball, the moment we have all been waiting for finally arrived: the results of the Commons Cup were announced.
And the winner is …… WEST HOUSE!!!!!!!
After winning three of the five Commons Cup categories, West House is the clear winner to the 2021-2022 Commons Cup. North House has been dethroned by their neighbor across the lawn. I cannot think of a better way for West to finish end their centennial anniversary than by claiming the Commons Cup. Congratulations! This year, West House really was the Best House.
Following West, East took second place. Crawford and Sutherland tied for third.
Winners for the different categories were also announced and are as follows:
Community Involvement – West House
Sustainability – West House
Service – West House
Academics – Crawford House
Athletics – Hank Ingram House
The full placement for each house overall and in the five categories has not been published. The Dean of the Ingram Commons Office declined My Commons Life’s request for comment about these rankings.
This competition has been a wild ride, but all things must come to an end. Congratulations to this year’s victors and best of luck to those getting ready to start their Commons journey in the Class of 2026.
