Loyola Men Take 10th In Capital One Cup, Women 44th
June 27, 2012
BALTIMORE - On the heels of winning its first NCAA Division I National Championship, the Loyola University Maryland athletic department finished tied for 10th in the Men's Capital One Cup, and 44th in the women's standings, for the 2011-2012 academic year.
The Greyhounds totaled 60 points to finish tied with North Dakota State on the men's side. Loyola and the Bison, who won the 2011 NCAA Football Championship Series title, were the highest finishers by schools not affiliated with BCS conferences. There were no other BCS schools amongst the top 20 in either the men's or women's rankings.
With an undergraduate enrollment of just over 3,800 students, Loyola is the smallest school to finish in the top 10 on either the men's or women's side in the Cup's history.
Florida won the men's cup, followed respectively by Arizona, UCLA, LSU, North Carolina, Alabama, Kentucky, Arkansas and Ohio State.
Loyola's women, bolstered by the women's lacrosse team's NCAA Quarterfinal appearance, scored 12 points and tied for 44th.
In addition to winning the NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship, three other teams from the University won their respective conference titles and advanced to NCAA competition.
The men's basketball team captured its first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference crown since 1994 and advanced to the NCAA Second Round, and the men's golf team won its fifth-straight MAAC title and went on to the NCAA Regionals.
Loyola's women's lacrosse team won the BIG EAST Conference crown for the second year in a row and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinal for the same time in as many seasons.
The Capital One Cup is awarded annually to each of the best men's and women's Division I college athletics programs in the country. Points toward the Capital One Cup are earned and tracked throughout the year based on final standings of NCAA Championships and final official coaches' polls.
