University of Denver Celebrates LSDC Success
DU’s Division of Athletics is being recognized with dual proclamations from Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper and Denver Mayor Michael Hancock who are declaring Oct. 22, 2011 “University of Denver Pioneer Athletics Day.”
The proclamations celebrate DU’s outstanding athletic performance during the 2010–11 academic year, culminating in the University’s fourth-consecutive Learfield Sports I-AAA Directors’ Cup, awarded annually to the highest achieving non-football athletics program in NCAA Division I.
“We’re very proud of our DU student-athletes,” says University of Denver Chancellor Robert Coombe. “They had another great year, capturing their fourth-straight Directors’ Cup, while maintaining their tremendous academic performance. In many ways, our programs are emblematic of the best in collegiate athletics: great student athletes, high integrity, and top levels of competition. It’s a great time to be a Pioneer.”
