There are approximately 440 institutions in Division III vying for Directors Cup points.

The Learfield Sports Directors' Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today. Points are awarded based on each institution's NCAA Division III championship finish in up to 18 sports -- nine women's and nine men's.

The Knights received 80 points for fourth place in men's cross country and 54 points for 12th place in women's cross country.

Six of the seven fall sports have been completed in the academic year-long competition with football still to be determined. The final fall standings are scheduled for release on December 21.
