CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The University of North Carolina leads the Division I Learfield Sports Directors' Cup standings after the completion of six NCAA Championships. 

Carolina captured the women's soccer national title, finished second in field hockey, fifth in men's soccer and 32nd in cross country to boast a total of 292.00 points. 

Michigan (265.00) is in second place, followed by UCLA (256.00), Georgetown (253.50) and Stanford (251.50).

The Learfield Sports Directors' Cup was developed as a joint effort between the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today.  Points are awarded based on each institution's finish in up to 20 sports - 10 women's and 10 men's.

The Tar Heels have averaged a sixth-place finish in the 19 years that NACDA has sponsored the competition. UNC won the inaugural competition in 1994 and has finished second four times.  Carolina has placed in the Top 10 four consecutive seasons, including last year's eighth place finish.
