Virginia vaults into Top 10 of Directors' Cup standings

After a slow fall and winter sports season, Virginia vaulted into the Top 10 in the Directors' Cup standings, just released today.  The Cavaliers' dominance of spring sports has never been in question, and this much proved to be true in today's release, as the Hoos put up 359 points, more than any other school, earning them ninth place overall in this midseason report.

Virginia's points this spring come from the men's lacrosse national championship (1st place - 100 points), men's tennis (2nd place - 90 points), women's golf (4th place - 80 points), women's tennis (9th place - 64 points) and women's lacrosse (9th place - 25 points).

This is an improvement over last year's midseason spring update, when the Cavaliers put up a total of 339 points from the same five sports. Still, this year's program is behind last year's, as the 2010 Cavaliers earned 337.00 points in the fall and 273.50 points in the winter, as compared to this year's 244.50 points in the fall and 225.50 points in the winter.

Virginia is currently third in the ACC with a total of 828.50 points, behind North Carolina (3rd, 1070.25 points) and Duke (4th, 991.50). Maryland is also close behind, coming in 10th with 807.50 points.

Our friends in Blacksburg check in at No. 50 with a total of 332.00 points.

This release does not include baseball, women's rowing or men's and women's track & field, all of which Virginia should be earning points in. Read the full release and points totals here.
