CHARLOTTESVILLE — The latest standings were released Thursday morning, and UVa continues to lead the Directors’ Cup competition for Division I schools.
Virginia has 337 points, 100 of which came from the NCAA men’s soccer championship that George Gelnovatch’s team won last weekend in Cary, N.C.
North Carolina is second with 283 points. Stanford, the perennial champion in the Directors’ Cup competition, is third with 281.
The final fall standings will be released Jan. 13. Still to be figured in are football and volleyball, sports for which UVa won’t get any points.
A year ago, UVa was in 11th place coming out of the fall. Virginia finished eighth overall in 2008-09.
