Learfield Cup Standings

CLEVELAND, Ohio – After a successful winter season, Baker University (Kan.) remains the only Heart of America Athletic Conference school to garner a Top 25 ranking in the winter edition of the latest NAIA Learfield Sports Directors' Cup Standings.

Baker currently checks in at No. 18 nationally after closing out the fall season ranked No. 10 nationally. Baker’s rival MidAmerica Nazarene (Kan.) closed out the fall season ranked No. 20 nationally and currently sits at No. 39 nationally. Missouri Valley College checked in at No. 55 and Central Methodist (Mo.) rounded out the Top 100 at No. 75.

“We are extremely proud to represent the HAAC in the Top 25 of the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup Standings,” said Baker University Athletic Director Theresa Yetmar. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all our student-athletes and coaches. I want to thank our alumni, administration, and fans for all the support they have given us over the past year.”

The Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today. Points are awarded based on each institution's finish in up to 12 sports -- six women’s and six men’s.

The first spring NAIA Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings will be released Thursday, May 31.

Please note, standings published midseason are unofficial. Official standings will be published upon the completion of the spring season.
