A Director’s Cup update as we await the conclusion of exam break…


UVA will reside in 6th place with 225.5 points after the next report. Stanford will lead followed by Michigan, UCLA, PSU, UNC, UVA, Duke, Princeton, Wisconsin, Colorado, NCSU, Michigan State, Wake Forest, Syracuse, Arkansas, Louisville, BYU, Texas, Oregon, and Indiana. Of those top 20 you will find that Princeton, Colorado, NCSU, Wake Forest, Syracuse, Arkansas, and Indiana are the pretenders as top 15 finishers. The others are proven contenders to finish in the top 15. The soon to be published report adds Men Water Polo (UCLA champions), Men Soccer (Stanford champions) and Women Soccer (Stanford champions) to give six sports reported along with the previously reported Field Hockey, Men XC, and Women XC. The next report will include Women Volleyball with the last Fall report after the conclusion of football.

After volleyball concludes next weekend UVA should be in 11th place overall with 225.5 points. After football concludes UVA could be as high as 9th and should not be any lower than 13th. This is somewhat in line with the average Fall finishes with the 5 year average finish roughly 14th and the 10 year average finish roughly 11th.

If UVA wins their bowl game then their point total will be 270.5 for the Fall season. This would be between their 5 year Fall season average of 280.10 and their 10 year Fall season average of 260.05. If UVA comes up short in their bowl game the resulting 250.5 points will trail both their 5 year and 10 year averages.

A few interesting tidbits about the overall performance of UVA in the 25-year history of the Director’s Cup include (not including results from this the 25th season):

Total number of points scored by the women’s program = 9212.5 and the total number of points scored by the men’s program = 9377.0. The women average 29.53 points per sport (13 sports competing) and the men average 32.56 points per sport (12 sports competing). This distribution is far more evenly divided between the two gender programs than I would have expected.

The three highest total point producers for the men are soccer (1387.0), tennis (1277.5), and lacrosse (1228.0). The total of 3892.5 points for these three sports represents 41.5% of the total points produced by the men’s teams.

The three highest total point producers for the women are rowing (1468.0), soccer (1341.5), and swimming and diving (1220.0). The total of 4029.5 points for these three sports represents 43.7% of the total points produced by the women’s teams.

The men’s sport producing the fewest total points is football (214.0) and the women’s sport producing the fewest total points is softball (25.0).
