University of Michigan sports teams atop fall Director's Cup standings
It's no secret that the University of Michigan athletic department has invested heavily in upgrading its facilities across the board in recent years.
That investment is paying off on the field.
The Wolverines garnered the most points in the fall season for the volleyball team's recent run to the Final Four. Michigan's also earned points with a fifth place finish in women’s cross country, ninth place finishes in both women’s field hockey and soccer, 17th place in men’s soccer and 23rd in men’s cross country.
North Carolina is in second place with 342 points, while defending champion Stanford is in third place with 324.5 points.
Other Big Ten schools in the top 25 include Penn State (4th, 323.5) and Michigan State (15th, 215.5). Maryland, which will join the Big Ten in 2014, is currently in 14th place with 216 points.
Michigan finished in 10th place in the Director's Cup standing last year.
