Penn State fourth in Directors' Cup

Big deal? Yeah, why not.
Following strong performances from its fall sports, including a third consecutive women's volleyball national championship, Penn State stands in fourth place in the 2009-10 Learfield Sports Directors' Cup standings.

The Nittany Lions have garnered 318.50 points to post their 10th top five fall finish in the 17 years of the Directors' Cup. Fourth place marks the Lions' best fall finish since 2005-06, when they were second. Penn State has finished in the top 25 in all 16 previous Directors' Cup surveys, with eight top 10 finishes.


Five Penn State fall squads garnered Directors' Cup points, led by 100 from women's volleyball. The football team racked up 70.5 points, the men's and women's soccer teams reached the round of 32 to pick up 50 points apiece and women's cross country added 48.
