Penn State Finishes 19th in Director’s Cup

NACDA LogoPenn State Athletics finished 19th nationally in the 2008-2009 Director’s Cup standings for Division I programs. The final results were released yesterday by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics.

The Director’s Cup is awarded to the school whose athletic program is successful in all NCAA acknowledged sports, with equal weight placed on all sports. That means that Football and Men’s Basketball are equally as important as the sports that get less national coverage (Women’s Water Polo, for example). Each school may have up to 20 sports count towards their score (10 men’s and 10 women’s).

Penn State finished with a score of 813.10 points. Stanford, for the 15th-straight year, finished in first with 1455.00 points. Penn State finished fourth among Big Ten schools, behind Michigan (5th), Ohio State (10th), and Minnesota (14th). With the exception of Indiana (55th), all Big Ten teams finished in the top 50.

Grand Valley State (Mich.) took home the award for Division II schools, while Williams (Mass.) was the winner for Division III.
