Stanford claimed its third Women's Capital One Cup as the most successful athletics program in the country during the 2014-15 season, as announced Tuesday by the corporation.
The Cardinal has won three of five awards since the Capital One Cup began in 2010-11.
Highlighted by national championships in golf and water polo, the Cardinal accumulated 136.5 points to edge second-place Florida (131) and third-place Penn State (105). Stanford showcased consistency throughout the year, earning points in field hockey, indoor track and field, soccer, volleyball, fencing, gymnastics, swimming and diving, golf, water polo and rowing.
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 past six seasons in women's lightweight rowing.
The Cardinal has won at least one NCAA championship (men or women) in each of the past 39 seasons, representing the longest active streak in the nation.
The Capital One Cup is awarded annually to each of the best men's and women's Division I college athletics programs in the country. Points toward the Capital One Cup are earned and tracked throughout the year based on final standings of NCAA Championships and final official coaches' polls.
One winning men's and one winning women's program have been crowned and Capital One will award a combined $400,000 in student-athlete scholarships and the Capital One Cup trophy to the winning schools at the ESPY awards in July.
