Missouri S&T’s scoring performances at the NCAA Division II Track & Field Championships have allowed the university’s athletics program to finish in the top one-third of Division II in the final Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings for the 2008-09 season.
The S&T track teams both had competitors score at the national meet, resulting in 93.5 points to be added to the school’s point total for the season. Missouri S&T finished with 233.5 points for the year, buoyed by the swimming team’s third-place showing at its national meet in March.
As a result, the final score put Missouri S&T in 91st place in the final standings among the 291 institutions competing at the NCAA Division II level.
Missouri S&T ranked sixth among the teams from the Great Lakes Valley Conference this season. Indianapolis had the highest ranking among the GLVC schools as it came in fifth place, while Northern Kentucky was 17th and Drury finished in 27th place.
