Final Winter Update – #ACC’s Performance in the @LSDirectorsCup


Good evening, Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) sports fans!!

What is the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup?

It is an award that honors institutions maintaining broad-based athletics programs success in many sports (including male and female sports). The Directors’ Cup, founded by the National Association of College Directors of Athletics and USA Today, began in 1993-1994 for NCAA Division I athletics. In 1995-96, it was expanded to include Division II, III and the NAIA. Each institution is awarded points in a pre-determined number of sports for men and women. The overall champion is the institution that records the highest number of points in their division’s Directors’ Cup standings. For NCAA Division I, there are 20 sports included (ten men’s and ten women’s).

Stanford is going to win this year’s Director’s Cup.  No one will catch the Cardinal.  The race is for 2nd place – and North Carolina has an opportunity to catch Penn State if the Tar Heels do well in the NCAA Lacrosse Championships.  The ACC has two institutions ranked in the top 10 and seven in the top 30.  North Carolina is third, Notre Dame is ninth, Florida State is eleventh, and Virginia is twelfth.  Additionally, North Carolina State comes in at 22nd, Duke is at 25th, and Louisville is #26 (Maryland is #39 – just saying, bruh – JUST SAYING).

All in all – once again, the ACC has done very well – and member institutions should be proud of the conference’s performance.

The first Division I spring standings will be released Thursday, May 28.
