SUNYAC places six institutions in fall standings
The State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) annually ranks as one of the deepest athletic conference in NCAA Division III, routinely sending teams to the national playoffs, and the 2011-12 season has been no exception. The SUNYAC enjoyed another successful fall season, evidenced by the league’s impressive showing in the first 2011-12 Division III Learfield Sports Director’s Cup Standings of the season.
The SUNYAC were one of just ten conferences across all of Division III to place six schools in the standings, which measure schools’ overall achievement in postseason play by awarding points based on each team’s finish. The standings were released Dec. 21, 2011 by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), and only the NESCAC and the North Coast (eight) and the MIAC (seven) placed more schools in the standings than the SUNYAC (six).
All six SUNYAC schools appear in the top 100 with four in the top 75 and two in the top 50, including one in the top ten.
