June 21, 2002

NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The University of Notre Dame stands in 17th place in the second set of spring sports standings released in the 2001-02 Sears Directors' Cup all-sports competition.

Notre Dame has scored 275 spring points through its NCAA appearances in women's lacrosse (40 points based on quarterfinal appearance), men's tennis (50 points based on Final 16 appearance), women's tennis (20 points based on first-round play), softball (50 points from regional runnerup finish), men's outdoor track (58.5 from 24th-place finish) and women's outdoor track (56.5 from 27th-place finish). Still to come for the Irish are points from NCAA qualification in baseball (Notre Dame should receive 60 points for its appearance in the College World Series). Final standings will be announced June 25.

The latest standings include NCAA spring sports results in men's and women's tennis, men's and women's golf, men's and women's lacrosse, men's and women's outdoor track and field, women's water polo, women's rowing, softball and men's volleyball.

Notre Dame and Stanford were the only schools to score in each of five traditional fall Olympic sports - men's and women's cross country, men's and women's soccer and women's volleyball.

Stanford (1,369.5 points) leads the competition thanks to its NCAA championships in men's water polo, women's water polo, women's tennis, and women's volleyball and its second-place finishes in men's cross country and men's swimming.

The current standings also include results from NCAA fall competition in women's volleyball, field hockey, men's and women's soccer, men's water polo, Division I-A and I-AA football, and men's and women's cross country - as well as NCAA winter competition in men's and women's basketball, fencing, men's and women's hockey, men's and women's swimming, men's wrestling, men's and women's indoor track and field, men's and women's gymnastics, rifle and skiing.
