Named for the town of Sterling which lies halfway between both Universities, the ‘Sterling Cup’ was started back in the 1980’s to build a traditional rivalry between Fitchburg State University and Worcester State University. At the end of the spring season, one school is honored with the coveted Sterling Cup trophy, symbolizing dominant success over the opposing school. One point is awarded to the winner in each of the 16 NCAA sponsored sports, and at the end of the year, the school with the most points is deemed the Sterling Cup Champion.
