JCCC seventh in NATYCAA Cup standings

OVERLAND PARK, KS – The National Alliance of Two Year Athletic Administrators sponsors the NATYCAA Cup, which is awarded each year in recognition of overall athletic performance at two-year institutions. The final standings for the 2012-13 cup were announced at the NATYCAA annual convention in June, and Johnson County Community College finished seventh overall out of 216 colleges. JCCC also placed the highest among the 19 Kansas Jayhawk Conference schools. 

The NATYCAA Cup program began in 2003-04 to highlight excellence in two-year athletics based on success in championship competition. Points are accumulated throughout the year based on performance at national championship events. A first place finish warrants 20 points, second place 19 points, etc. JCCC finished with 96.5 points. The Lady Cavaliers compiled 56 points last year in championship events, and men tallied 40.5. 

The JCCC women’s outdoor track and field team and the golf team each scored 17 points by finishing fourth in their respective national championships. Other top 10 national finishers turned in by JCCC teams were the women’s indoor track team (6th), women’s half marathon team (6th), women’s tennis team (6th) and the men’s half marathon team (8th). 

Iowa Central Community College captured its fifth straight NATYCAA Cup title finishing with 181 total points. Monroe Community College was second with 153. JCCC has finished in the top 10 all 10 years of the cup award, and among the top three five times, including a cup championship in 2007-08.
