LAS CRUCES, N.M. – New Mexico State reached an all-time high when the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) released its first spring totals for the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup.
The Directors’ Cup recognizes programs by awarding points for an institution’s success in NCAA Championships competition during a scholastic year.
The Aggies now have 100 points in the competition for the scholastic year after the first of four spring updates. NM State ranks 129th overall.
The 100 points is the most in the 22-year history of the program. The previous high was 89 points in the program from the 2012-13 year.
The NM State points counted through Thursday’s update include only those for men’s basketball, women’s basketball, men’s tennis and women’s tennis.
The Aggies will get points for three more sports, women’s golf, softball and men’s golf, to be announced in a Directors’ Cup update in June.
The Aggies won the WAC Commissioner’s Cup for the first time in 2014-15 after winning seven consecutive conference championships during the year.
