Aggies 28th In Directors’ Cup Standings

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas—Three top 10 finishes by Texas A&M athletic programs vaulted the Aggies from 69th in the final fall standings of the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup standings to 28th in the initial winter standings.

“We set a school record for points scored (881) last year in the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup and with more top 10 finishes from our sports, we look to improve on that standard,” Aggie Director of Athletics Bill Byrne said.

The Aggies received 80 points for the fourth place finish by the women’s swimming and diving team, 72 points by the women’s indoor track and field squad and 66.75 points by the men’s indoor track and field program.

Texas A&M has 293.75 points thus far and the initial winter standings do not include men’s or women’s basketball, nor men’s swimming and diving. The women’s basketball team is still alive in the NCAA Championships and the men’s basketball program advanced to the second round of the NCAA Championships. The men’s swimming and diving program has finished among the nation’s Top 25 the past 12 consecutive years and competes in the NCAA Championships this weekend.

The Aggies posted a record 881 points in the 2006-07 competition and finished in 18th place in Division I. The highest finish for Texas A&M was a 16th place finish in 2003-04.

The next update of the standings will include both basketball championships as well as the men’s swimming and diving championships. The results will be released on April 10. The final standings will be released in late June.
