LA JOLLA, Calif. - Following a very successful 2009-10 season, UC San Diego finished eighth in the final Learfield Sports Directors' Cup standings that were released on Wednesday. UCSD has now placed in the top 10 each of the last six seasons.

UC San Diego had a total of 11 sports advance to NCAA postseason play in 2009-10, highlighted by the baseball team's national runner-up finish at the Division II Championships last month in Cary, N.C. UCSD had a very strong spring season overall, as five teams went on to participate in postseason play.

UCSD finished with a total of 626 points in the standings, 10.75 behind seventh place Ashland (Ohio). Grand Valley State of the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) won its seventh consecutive Directors' Cup title with a total of 1,021.50 points. Fellow CCAA member Chico State also posted a top 20 finish, placing 12th overall with 577 points.

The Learfield Sports Directors' Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and the USA Today. Points are awarded based on each institution's finish in up to 14 sports -- seven women's and seven men's.

UCSD's best finish in the Directors' Cup standings came in 2006-07, when it placed second overall.

UC San Diego also captured a fifth consecutive CCAA Commissioner's Cup earlier this month after winning three conference titles and recording five second place finishes during the season.
