Ohio State Finishes Fourth In Directors’ Cup Final Winter Standings

It seems like every time you turned on an athletic event this winter, Ohio State was somewhere in the mix. Whether it be the NCAA Tournament for both men and women’s basketball, the Frozen Four and Women’s Hockey semi-finals, or wrestling. You name it, and OSU seemed to be right there.

In fact, Ohio State athletics had the NCAA’s best point total of anyone for the winter, but it wasn’t enough to over take first place Stanford, second place Penn State, or third place Michigan. The Buckeyes remain in fourth, followed by NC State in fifth.

Here is the complete release from Ohio State this morning:

COLUMBUS, Ohio – In the final set of winter Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings, Ohio State remains in fourth place behind Stanford, Penn State and Michigan and ahead of fifth-place North Carolina State.

The Buckeyes finished the winter with seventh- and 13th-place standings by men’s and women’s gymnastics. Ohio State’s men’s gymnastics team advanced to the NCAA Championships behind Nissen-Emery Award winner Sean Melton and Collegiate Gymnastics Association Event Specialist of the Year and MVP Alec Yoder. The women’s gymnastics Buckeyes placed third in the NCAA Columbus Regional in the first year under the direction of head coach Meredith Paulicivic. In that meet, junior Jamie Stone tied her career-high 9.900 on vault, advancing to NCAA Championships as an individual.

This winter, the Buckeyes tallied a second-place wrestling finish, third-places finishes from the fencing and men’s and women’s ice-hockey teams and a seventh-place standing for the rifle team.

The Learfield Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today. Complete standings and the scoring structure can be found on NACDA’s website at www.directorscup.org. 

The first Division I spring standings will be released Thursday, May 24.
