Propelled by NCAA national tournament appearances in nine sports, Central College placed 44th in this year’s Learfield Sports Division III Directors’ Cup Standings, which ranks schools on a points system based on their success in athletics. HIghlights for the Dutch this season included top-20 national finishes in women’s cross country and men’s outdoor track, and national tournament births for the football and men’s basketball programs, among others. The 44th place finish in the Directors’ Cup standings was Central’s highest finish since placing 33rd in 2003-2004, and placed Central College in the top ten percent among Division III schools this year.
