The final standings of the Learfield Directors' Cup was announced and the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) saw all nine institutions ranked with Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (CMS) leading the way ranked fourth. Two other institutions joined CMS in the top 100 as Pomona-Pitzer finished 29th and Cal Lutheran 99th after recently capturing the Division III Baseball National Championship.
Redlands was just outside the top 100 finished 101st with 199.50 points. Occidental was 132nd totaling 151.50 points. La Verne finished with 63.50 points which put them at 232. Whittier finished 239th while Chapman was 241st. Caltech was 282 rounding out the SCIAC institutions.
Schools must have competed in an NCAA Championship during the academic year in order to compile points in the standings. The Learfield Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today. Points are awarded based on each institution’s finish in up to 18 sports in Division III – nine women’s and nine men’s.
