The University of Arkansas leads the SEC and remains among the nation’s top 25 intercollegiate athletics programs in the most recent 2018-19 Learfield Sports Directors Cup Standings released Thursday by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of America.

The Directors Cup tracks the nation’s most successful intercollegiate athletics programs for their performances throughout the year.

Arkansas, ranked No. 21, is one of only two SEC programs, along with Ole Miss, in the top 25 of the most recent standings. The standings released Thursday included women’s field hockey, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s soccer and men’s water polo. The Razorbacks have 160.5 points.

The Razorbacks earned 50 points in the latest standings thanks to a postseason run by the soccer program. Arkansas reached its third-consecutive SEC Tournament final and earned its third-consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance under Coach Colby Hale.
