TEXAS A&M FINISHES WITH RECORD 5th PLACE FINISH IN DIVISION I DIRECTORS' CUP

 COLLEGE STATION, Texas—In its first season of competition in the Southeastern Conference, the Texas A&M athletics program established a school-best finish of fifth place with 1131.50 points in the final 2012-13 Learfield Sports Directors' Cup.

 The SEC is the only conference with three institutions in the Top 10, with Florida at No. 2, the Aggies at No. 5 and Georgia at No. 10. Six SEC schools finished ranked in the Top 25.

 "This has absolutely been a fantastic year. Our fifth place finish in the Learfield Director's Cup is a remarkable accomplishment and a reflection of the hard work by our student-athletes and coaches," said Texas A&M Director of Athletics Eric Hyman. "The men's outdoor track and field national championship and national runner-up finishes for both women's tennis and women's outdoor track and field capped a historic year for Texas A&M. We are proud to be recognized among the best athletics programs in the country."

 This marks the 20th year for the Directors' Cup, with Texas A&M finishing in the Top 10 for the fourth straight year and the Top 25 for eight consecutive seasons.

 "It goes without saying that winning an national championship is a tremendous accomplishment for a team," said Pat Henry, Texas A&M's head track and field and cross country coach, who claimed his seventh national championship in the past five years and his 34th overall national championship  "Overall, our teams have been very successful both indoors and outdoors. Our NCAA national championship for the men and an NCAA runner-up finish for the women are hard-earned points. My staff and I are very proud of our team's efforts and Texas A&M's overall accomplishments this year."

 The men's outdoor track and field national championship was the fourth national crown in the past five years for the Aggie men. The women's team finished second in the outdoor championships. At the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships, the men finished in fourth place while the women placed 12th. The men's and women's cross country teams each added 29 points.

 Texas A&M women's tennis head coach Howard Joffe led his program to the national championship match to place second and score 90 points.

 "Finishing fifth in the Directors' Cup is emblematic of the wonderful work that goes on in Aggie athletics," Joffe stated. "It speaks to an efficient and effective administration, excellent support for the students, top coaches and very fine student-athletes. I'm very fortunate to be part of such a powerful and proud athletics department."

 The Learfield Sports Directors' Cup takes into consideration the top 10 female sports and the top 10 male sports at each institution. In Texas A&M's case, the school sponsors 20 intercollegiate sports, 11 female and nine male.

 This year Texas A&M had 10 teams finish with Top 10 marks and 15 finished in the country's Top 25 as compiled by NACDA.

 Texas A&M's fall sports scored 247 points, led by the Aggie football team finishing the year ranked fifth in the country and women's soccer placing ninth.

 The winter sports combined for 324.5 points, led by men's indoor track and field and women's swimming and diving each finishing fourth.

 The spring sports posted 560 overall points with six squads posting Top 10 finishes: men's outdoor track and field, women's outdoor track and field, women's tennis, men's golf, men's tennis and women's softball.
