DURHAM, N.C. - Duke moved up to third place in the latest Learfield Sports Directors' Cup Standings, released this week by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics.  The Directors' Cup rankings measure an athletic program's comprehensive sports success by totaling points based on a team's finish in national competition.

After the previous ranking released on June 2, Duke's point total increased from 991.50 to 1171.50 as the Blue Devils posted scoring finishes in men's golf (82.5 points), men's track & field (39) and women's track & field (58.5). Overall, Duke ranks second among private institutions behind Stanford. Duke's top showing in the Directors' Cup Standings was a fifth place finish in 2005. Duke's 1171.50 points accumulated are the most in school history.

In addition, four Atlantic Coast Conference schools are ranked in the top 10 - Duke, North Carolina (6th; 1,121.75 points), Florida State (9th; 1015.00) and Virginia (10th; 1009.00 points), while Maryland sits in 16th place (858.00 points). Duke has finished atop the ACC in the Directors' Cup Standings two times (1999 & 2005) overall.
