Wesley 80th in Division III standings: Wesley College placed 80th among all NCAA Division III athletic programs when this year’s final Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings were released on Thursday.

That put the Wolverines in the top 17.7 percent of all athletic programs. The Learfield Directors’ Cup ranks Division III schools based on 18 sports — nine women’s and nine men’s.

Wesley received 70 points from the performances of their fall sports teams, 72 points from their winter sports’ performances and 99.25 points for the spring season, giving the Wolverines a total of 241.25 points on the year.

The Wolverines were joined by four other Capital Athletic Conference members in the top 80: York, Mary Washington, Christopher Newport, and Salisbury.

“We are proud to be recognized in the top 20 percent of institutions in overall success that the Learfield Cup represents,” said Wesley athletic director Mike Drass. “Being one of five CAC teams in the top 80 teams in the nation is a true point of pride for Wesley athletics.”
