The College’s athletics program finished in third place in the race for the 2007–08 US Sports Academy Directors’ Cup, making this the 13th straight year that TCNJ has finished in the top 10. The Directors’ Cup is awarded to the best overall collegiate athletics programs at the Division I, II, and III levels. TCNJ competes at the Division III level.
Points for the Directors’ Cup are based on a school’s order of finish in various NCAA-sponsored championships. The College picked up its third-place finish while at the same time setting a new high-water mark for the institution, scoring 825.25 total points. That mark bettered last year’s score of 793 points, when TCNJ finished in sixth place.
During the spring, TCNJ finished third in women’s lacrosse, ninth in men’s tennis, 13th in women’s outdoor track and field, and 17th in both baseball and women’s tennis for 309.25 points. In the fall, the Lions amassed 254.0 points, while collecting 262.0 points in winter NCAA championships.
TCNJ is one of just two schools to have finished in the top 10 places in the Directors’ Cup standings in each of the program’s 13 years.
