The final standings for the 2012-13 Learfield Sports Director's Cup Division III standings were released Thursday and CMS finished 13th with 677 points. The finish is the program's highest ever under the current scoring structure. CMS was fourth among programs with less than 3000 students and was the top finisher among SCIAC and West Coast schools.
CMS was ranked 40th after the winter season, but moved up significantly due to its outstanding spring. Seven spring sports earned 433.5 points including men's tennis (2nd - 90 pts.), women's tennis (4th - 83 pts.), men's golf (5th - 75 pts.), women's golf (11th - 57 pts.), softball (17th - 50 pts.), men's track & field (28th - 45 pts.) and women's track & field (39th - 33.5 pts.). Only two other programs earned more points in the spring season than CMS.
The Director’s Cup competition is now in its 18th year. The competition awards points based on a team's finish at the NCAA Championships. CMS has been the top finishing SCIAC representative 13 times and also finished in the top 40 overall 13 times including five straight times.
