And the Gators may not be quite finished. The Gator Baseball team needs just one win at the College World Series in order to claim another top five finish for the school.
The National Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) sponsors the "Director's Cup". The Cup is won by Stanford just about every year. In the latest standings as usual The Cardinal has a huge lead in the rankings with 1,395 points compared to No.2 Ohio State with 1,000.5.
Florida (919) was No.6 in the last standings, but since then the Gators have posted high NCAA finishes in Men's Golf (11th) and Softball (t-5th) as well as Men's (2nd) and Women's (3rd) Outdoor Track and Field. Those finishes will be calculated into the next scoring update which comes out on June 23. The Final standings are released after the CWS on July 1.
The Gators could match their highest overall finish if all goes well. The Gators finished 2nd nationally in the 1997-98 school year. This is the 27th year for the All Sports competition and Florida is the only school that has finished in the top ten every year.
The All-Sports standings are based on your ten highest finishes in men's sports and your 10 highest in women's sports. Stanford fields 37 teams including rowing, sailing and water polo among others. Florida fields 20.
