UCLA Finishes Second in the Director’s Cup


UCLA has once again finished in the Top 5 of the NACDA Director’s Cup, the award given by Learfield Sports that honors the top college programs that have the most success across every sports program in their respective athletic departments. The Bruins finished 2nd among all Division I schools for the 2015-16 season.

More from UCLA Bruins

The Pac-12 was well represented as 6 schools made the Top 25. Stanford had taken the top spot as the #1 school in the nation. USC was third among all schools. Oregon, Cal and Washington were the other three teams at #13, #14 and #24, respectively.

The top three point totals are as follows: Stanford with 1448.0, UCLA with 1186.0 and USC with 1159.00.

UCLA had an excellent fall season and was ahead of Stanford by a considerable margin as they had success with Women’s Volleyball, Women’s Soccer, Men’s Soccer and the National Champion Men’s Water Polo team who captured the school’s 112th national title, extending UCLA’s lead among all NCAA schools in National Championships. Unfortunately, they had a dip in production in the winter sports, but improved in the Spring to finish second among all Division I schools.

Congratulations to all the outstanding student-athletes that helped bring great success to UCLA this year.
