Missouri S&T ranks 19th in 2008 NCSA rankings

Missouri S&T is the top-ranked institution in the Great Lakes Valley Conference and among the top 20 schools in NCAA Division II for the second straight year in the National Collegiate Scouting Association rankings. The Miners are ranked 19th in the 2008 listing.

The NCSA rankings rate colleges and universities at the NCAA Division I, II and III levels by averaging the U.S. News & World Report ranking, the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup ranking and the NCAA student-athlete graduation rate. A total of 291 institutions compete at the NCAA Division II level.
The collegiate power rankings based off of the U.S. Sports Academy Directors’ Cup rating evaluate the strength of NCAA athletic departments, while the U.S. News & World Report rating recognizes institutions of academic excellence. The student-athlete graduation rates are based on those provided by the NCAA.
This year’s top-ranked school is the University of California-San Diego. Missouri S&T was the top-ranked team in the GLVC in the 19th spot, with six other schools from the conference also finishing among the top 100. The others were the University of Missouri-St. Louis (24th), the University of Wisconsin-Parkside (39th), Quincy University (48th), Saint Joseph’s University (51st), Kentucky Wesleyan University (60th) and Drury University (92nd).
Missouri S&T has been ranked among the top 100 schools in NCAA Division II in the NCSA rankings for the last three years.
In addition to the collegiate power rankings, NCSA also provides recruiting education to high school athletic directors and coaches, as well as families of student-athletes who are interested in competing at the next level.
