Stanford wins another Directors’ Cup
Stanford recently secured the 2014-15 Division I Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup, extending its streak to 21 consecutive seasons of capturing the award presented to the most successful intercollegiate athletic department in the nation.
Stanford compiled 1,448 total points, with UCLA (1,236), USC (1,209), Florida (1188.50) and North Carolina (1,152) rounding out to the top five. The Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics and USA Today. Points are awarded based on each institution’s finish in up to 20 sports — 10 women’s and 10 men’s.
Stanford claimed three national championships in 2014-15, increasing its overall total to 127. Of Stanford’s 127 championships, 107 are NCAA titles, including 2015 crowns in women’s water polo and women’s golf. Also this season, the Cardinal captured its fifth IRA National Championship over the last six seasons in women’s lightweight rowing.
The Cardinal has won at least one NCAA championship in each of the last 39 seasons, representing the longest active streak in the nation.
