2017-18 NCAC FINAL All-Sports Update

Denison won two outright league titles in men's swimming & diving and women's lacrosse, shared the league title with Kenyon in field hockey and posted 14 additional top-five finishes during the 2017-18 academic year to win its league-leading 16th North Coast Athletic Conference All-Sports Championship. Denison trailed DePauw in the All-Sports standings after both the fall and winter seasons, but the Big Red logged top-five finishes in eight of the 10 spring sports to earn 165.0 total all-sports points and an 11-point victory in the final standings over both DePauw and Ohio Wesleyan. Among the Big Red's 14 additional top-five finishes, six were second-place showings in baseball, men's lacrosse, men's tennis, women's tennis, softball and women's swimming & diving

The Big Red also added third-place finishes throughout the year in women's soccer and women's golf, while fourth-place finishes were accomplished in football, men's soccer and volleyball.

DePauw, which has won three All-Sports titles in the last seven years, and Ohio Wesleyan, which last won the All-Sports crown in 2008-09, shared the second spot in the final standings with 154.0 points each. The Tigers earned top-five finishes in 18 championship sports, which included winning conference titles in men's cross country, women's basketball and women's golf, while the Bishops logged 17 top-five finishes with three league titles in men's indoor track & field, men's lacrosse and men's outdoor track & field. Kenyon finished fourth in the final standings with 149.5 points, but the Lords and Ladies led the conference this year with six total titles in field hockey, men's soccer, women's soccer, women's swimming & diving, men's tennis and women's tennis. Wittenberg checked in at fifth with 138.0 points and was second behind Kenyon with five league championships in football, volleyball, men's basketball, men's golf and softball. Wooster, which won its league-leading 18th baseball championship, finished sixth overall with 126.0 points, while Oberlin finished seventh with 114.0 total points, which included league titles in women's indoor track & field and women's outdoor track & field. Allegheny finished eighth with 112.0 points and a league title in women's cross country, while Wabash finished ninth with 72.0 points in 11 men's sports and Hiram finished 10th overall with 38.5 total points. 

The All-Sports champion earns the Dennis M. Collins All-Sports Trophy, given annually to the school that performs the best across the NCAC's 23 sports. Ten points are awarded for a first-place finish, nine for a second, eight for a third, and so on. Men's and women's performances are combined, exemplifying the North Coast's commitment to equity and balance among programs. Wooster won three of the first four All-Sports championships, interrupted only by Denison in year two. Ohio Wesleyan followed with a six-year run, leading to titles by Wooster (twice), Wittenberg (once), Denison (nine), OWU (twice), a tie between Denison and OWU in 2009. Wittenberg earned its second All-Sports title in 2010, followed  by Denison in 2011 and DePauw in 2012. Denison then claimed back-to-back titles in 2013 and 2014, while DePauw won the championship in 2015. The Big Red regained the title in 2016, before DePauw captured the title once again last year.

Ohio Wesleyan leads the way with 155 team championships during the NCAC's 34 playing seasons. Denison is next with 142 titles, followed by Kenyon (117), Allegheny (116), Wittenberg (105), Wooster (82), DePauw (25), Wabash (22), Oberlin (19) and Hiram (2).
