NCAC All-Sports Trophy

DePauw Takes Fall Lead In NCAC All-Sports Race

2019-20 NCAC Fall All-Sports Update

CLEVELAND, OH -- DePauw University earned two outright league titles during the fall season to take the early lead in the race for the 2019-20 North Coast Athletic Conference All-Sports Championship. 

The Tigers posted top-five finishes in all seven of the fall championship sports, as they finished on top of the league in both men's cross country and women's soccer. The DePauw women's cross countryfield hockey  and volleyball teams all placed fourth, while the football team took a share of fourth and men's soccer placed fifth. The Tigers closed out the fall season with 53.5 points and a three-and-a-half-point lead over Denison (50.0) for the coveted Dennis M. Collins All-Sports Trophy. The Big Red earned top-five finishes in five fall sports, highlighted by the field hockey and football teams each earning a share of their respective sport's 2019 championship titles.

Kenyon, which won a league title in men's soccer and a share of the field hockey title, sits just two-and-a-half points behind Denison in third place with 47.5 points. Ohio Wesleyan checked in at fourth, just one point behind the Lords and Ladies with 46.5 points after earning a share of the field hockey conference championship. Wittenberg currently sits in fifth with 40.5 points after earning the league's volleyball title and a share of the football crown, while Wooster is in sixth with 35.0 points. Oberlin placed seventh with 32.0 points, as the Yeowomen earned the 2019 women's cross country title, and Allegheny is in eighth with 31.0 points. Wabash (26.0) followed in ninth, as the Little Giants claimed a share of the football title, and Hiram (11.0) rounded out the fall standings. 

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), and then 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, before DePauw regained the championship in 2015. The Big Red then reclaimed the title in the 2015-16 academic year, while DePauw recaptured the prize again in 2017 before Denison earned the title back in 2018 and then again in 2019.

Ohio Wesleyan leads the way with 156 team championships during the NCAC's 36 playing seasons. Denison is next with 150 titles, followed by Kenyon (123), Allegheny (117), Wittenberg (109), Wooster (84), DePauw (31), Wabash (26), Oberlin (23) and Hiram (2).
