NCAC All-Sports Trophy

2017-18 NCAC Winter All-Sports Update

DePauw University won one winter sport league title and finished in the top-five in three additional sports to maintain its lead in the race for the 2017-18 North Coast Athletic Conference All-Sports Championship.

The Tigers won their sixth women's basketball championship in the last seven years after finishing the regular season with a perfect 16-0 record against league foes, while also finishing third overall in both men's swimming & diving and men's indoor track & field. The Tigers finished fourth overall in women's swimming & diving, to go along with a seventh-place finish in men's basketball and an eighth-place showing in women's indoor track & field. DePauw accumulated 40.0 total all-sport points during the winter season and now holds a narrow three-and-half point lead over Denison, 91.0-87.5, in the race for the coveted Dennis M. Collins All-Sports Trophy. The Big Red, who racked up 40.0 all-sports points in the winter season, won the league title in men's swimming & diving for the 10th year in a row and posted top-five finishes in three additional sports, placing second in women's swimming & diving, fifth in men's basketball and tying for fifth with Hiram in women's basketball. 

Kenyon, which won its conference-leading 25th title in women's swimming & diving, sits in third with 86.0 points, while Ohio Wesleyan is in fourth with 81.5 points after winning its third-straight league title in men's indoor track & field, finishing second in women's indoor track & field and third overall in men's basketball. Wittenberg rounds out the top-five in the all-sports standings in fifth-place with 78.5 points after securing its first men's basketball title since 2014, followed by Wooster in sixth (70.5), Oberlin in seventh (65.0), Allegheny in eighth (61.0), Wabash in ninth (45.5) and Hiram in 10th (28.5). Oberlin picked up the last conference title of the winter season by winning its second-straight league crown in women's indoor track & field.

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, followed by DePauw in 2015, Denison in 2016 and DePauw again claiming the top price in the 2016-17 academic year.

Ohio Wesleyan leads the way with 153 team championships during the NCAC's 34 playing seasons. Denison is next with 141 titles, followed by Allegheny (116), Kenyon (115) , Wittenberg (103), Wooster (81), DePauw (24), Wabash (22), Oberlin (18) and Hiram (2).
