Greyhounds 17th in Directors’ Cup

The University of Indianapolis finished in 17th place among the 233 NCAA Division II schools earning points in the 2009–10 Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings. The Directors’ Cup is awarded annually to the best overall collegiate athletics program in the country, tallying points for an institution’s national finishes in up to 14 sports—seven women’s and seven men’s.

UIndy’s 17th-place showing marked its seventh top-20 finish in the past eight years. Indianapolis also has three top-ten finishes to its credit, including a fifth-place result in 2008–09. UIndy sports accruing points in this season’s standings included six women’s and five men’s sports, with the most points coming in the spring season. Five spring sports scored points for the Greyhounds, with 69 coming from the ninth-place effort from the women’s golf team. The Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today.
