Stanford Secures its 12th Consecutive U.S. Sports Academy Directors' Cup
Division I Final Standings

"Cleveland, Ohio - With the conclusion of the College World Series, Stanford University has continued its record winning streak in the U.S. Sports Academy Directors' Cup competition for the NCAA Division I. The Cardinal has won its 12th consecutive award, presented annually by NACDA, the United States Sports Academy and USA Today to the best overall collegiate athletics programs in the country.

The Cardinal completed the year with 1,197.375 points, surpassing runner-up UCLA by 126 points. Stanford won its 12th straight Directors' Cup with national championships in women's cross country and tennis and runner-up finishes in women's indoor track and field and men's water polo. The Cardinal placed 11 additional teams in the top 10.

Stanford teams placing in the top 10 were women's water polo (3rd), men's gymnastics (3rd), men's swimming (3rd), women's basketball (5th), women's swimming (5th), men's tennis (5th), men's cross country (6th), fencing (men's) (7th), baseball (9th), women's lacrosse (9th), and softball (9th). The Cardinal recorded points nine men's sports and the maximum of 10 women's sports. However, Stanford does not receive points for women's soccer, lacrosse or rowing as the Cardinal have already scored in the Directors' Cup maximum of 10 women's sports. Stanford averaged 60 points per sport.

Developed as a joint effort between USA Today and NACDA, the United States Sports Academy Directors' Cup program is the only all-sports competition that recognizes the institution in each of the four categories with the best overall athletics program.

UCLA completed the year in second place with 1,071.375 points, with national titles in women water polo and men's volleyball and runner-up finishes in women's soccer and men's basketball and outdoor track and field. The Bruins also placed third in softball; fifth in men's tennis; seventh in men's golf; ninth in women's volleyball and tennis; 11th in women's golf; 13th in football and women's gymnastics; 14th in women's outdoor track and field; 17th in women's basketball and men's soccer; 20th in women's swimming; and 33rd in baseball.
