Director's Cup likely to remain in Stanford's possession


Stanford took control of the Learfield Directors Cup Division I race in the fall, thanks in large part to the men's soccer national title.

The Cardinal practically clinched its 22nd consecutive Cup with a national title in women's tennis and national runner-up finishes in women's golf and women's water polo.

The next set of standings are expected to be released on June 2, though Stanford carried 1,102 points into the spring sports season and accumulated 280 points in just the three women's sports. The men's tennis, men's volleyball and women's lacrosse teams will also be counted.

The standings due to be released on June 14 will include men's golf, women's rowing and both men's and women's track and field.

The standings are comprised of each school's top scores in 10 men's sports and 10 women's sports. Final standings are released following the College World Series.

Stanford won last year's competition with 1,448 points.


Both the Stanford men's and women's teams finished competition at the NCAA tournament in Tulsa, OK on Thursday.
