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.
