CLEVELAND – The University of Tampa enjoyed its best finish in five years in the NCAA Division II Learfield IMG College Directors' Cup.
The Learfield IMG College 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 NCAA Championships.
Led by national championship efforts by the baseball and volleyball teams that netted 100 points apiece, the Spartans finished the 2018-19 year with a total of 552.0 points. Also earning points for the Spartans for their NCAA postseason success were women's swimming (75), men's lacrosse (60), women's basketball (50), softball (50), women's golf (47), men's swimming (45) and women's lacrosse (25).
Also finishing 12th overall in the final standings in 2013-14, the only other year Tampa finished higher was its fifth-place finish in 2007-08.
