2014-15 NCAC FINAL All-Sports Update

DePauw University posted top-five finishes in 19-of-23 championship sports to earn the North Coast Athletic Conference All-Sports Championship for the second time in school history. The Tigers opened the 2014-15 campaign with top-five finishes in all seven fall sports, and continued their dominance in the winter season with five more top-five finishes, including their fourth-straight league title in women's basketball. DPU secured its All-Sports crown in the spring season with seven additional top-five finishes, which included conference titles in softball and women's tennis. The Tigers won their second All-Sports title in the last four years with 167.5 points, edging out Denison (157.5) by 10 points.

Four of the Tigers' 19 top-five finishes came in second place in field hockey, volleyball, women's golf and men's tennis, while third-place showings were accomplished in football, men's swimming & diving, women's swimming & diving and men's outdoor track & field.

Denison, the two-time defending NCAC All-Sports champion, finished second in the final standings after totaling 157.5 points during the 2014-15 academic year. The Big Red earned top-five finishes in 18 championship sports, which included league titles in both men's and women's swimming & diving. Ohio Wesleyan finished third overall with 150.5 points, while Wittenberg was fourth with 145.5. OWU and Wittenberg tied for the league-lead with five titles apiece during the 2014-15 academic year.
