Tigers in lead for NCAC All-Sports Championship
DePauw athletic teams secured not one, but four finishes in the top four in North Coast Athletic Conference championships this year. In its inaugural season as an NCAC member, DePauw holds the first place lead in the 2011-12 NCAC All-Sports Championship.
The All-Sports Championship is an annual competition that scores the finishes in conference tournaments of all 23 NCAC sports across both men's and women's teams.
Ten points are awarded for a first place finish, nine for a second, eight for third and so on. The champion earns the Dennis M. Collins All-Sports trophy and is meant to exemplify the NCAC's commitment to equity and balance among programs.
DePauw has had an impressive 2011-12 season, with one outright title from women's basketball, a third place finish from the men's swimming and diving team, fourth place from the women's swimming and diving team and two fourth place finishes for the track and field teams. The men's basketball team also tied with Hiram College.
DePauw currently holds a three and a half point margin over Ohio Wesleyan University with 89.5 points compared to their 86.
Denison University is the current holder for most All-Sport championships with 12. Ohio Wesleyan University follows in second with nine.
In the NCAC's 28 playing seasons, Ohio Wesleyan has racked up 132 team championships. Denison is next with 119, followed by Allegheny College with 107.
