UGA’s athletic program finished 14th in the 2014-15 Division I Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup competition.
Originated by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, the annual competition measures the success of athletic programs based on national finishes in each varsity sport. The Bulldogs moved up two spots from last year.
The athletic success included women’s swimming and diving team’s national runner-up finish in the NCAA championships, advancement by the women’s tennis team and men’s golf team advancing to the NCAA semifinals, a fifth-place NCAA finish by the women’s track and field. The Bulldogs also produced high national finishes in men’s tennis, track and field, swimming and diving and football as well as women’s gymnastics, softball and women’s indoor track and field.
