UCCS Fourth in New RMAC Snapshot Standings
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - With winter sports beginning to position for the postseason in just more than a month, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs dropped one spot to fourth in the latest RMAC "Snapshot" Standings compiled by the UCCS Sports Information Office. The standings provide an approximate strength of the overall athletic department among the 14 conference institutions.
The Mountain Lions came in at fourth with 641 points, an improvement of nearly 14 points from last week's ranking. Colorado Mesa jumped UCCS in the standings after the RMAC wrestling schedule began to feature more conference duals.
The "snapshot" scoring uses the final standings for the fall sports, and assigns points for sports in season based on the current standings. For men's and women's basketball and wrestling, the current conference standings were used. For men's and women's golf, the standings were calulated using the fall conference events and compiling each team's stroke total to provide a basis for the ranking. For men's and women's swimming, the performance lists maintained by USA Swimming were used to assign points if the lists were the conference championships results. For men's and women's indoor track and field, the national rankings compiled by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association were used, and if institutions were not ranked, they were scored in a hypothetical tie for last place.
The RMAC All-Sport Competition Cup scores each conference institution in 10 sports: four core sports (men's and women's basketball, volleyball, and either football or men's soccer), three women's wild card sports and three men's wild card sports. The wild card sports can include the top performances for an individual school in any other sport that the RMAC awards a championship in.
UCCS has never finished higher than sixth in the RMAC All-Sport Competition Cup since joining the conference in the 1997-98 season, and no higher than No. 10 in the last 10 years.
