UCCS Fourth in RMAC All-Sport Standings
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The first inclusion of the RMAC baseball season provided additional points for other conference schools and moved the University of Colorado Colorado Springs down to fourth in the new RMAC "Snapshot" All-Sport Competition Cup standings compiled today by the Mountain Lion sports information office.
The Mountain Lions came have unofficially scored 682 points so far, nearly 200 points more than the total from last year, which included the men's and women's outdoor track and field season. A fourth-place finish would be the highest in program history.
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, wrestling and softball, 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 and DiveMeets were used to assign points if the lists were the conference championships results. For men's and women's indoor track and field, the regional team index 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 all-sport points will become further finalized this week as the RMAC Swimming and Diving Championships begin today in Grand Junction, Colo.
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.
