Denison wins record 15th NCAC All-Sports Championship

Denison wins record 15th NCAC All-Sports Championship

Greatness may not be measured entirely in numbers, but these numbers don't lie.

Denison University won its record 15th Dennis M. Collins North Coast Athletic Conference All-Sports Championship after five league titles and 20 top-five finishes.  The Big Red's overwhelming consistency across the board has been the underlining story of this athletic department dating back to the mid-1990s.  The upward climb for all 23 varsity programs has only continued despite challenges from conference rivals, new and old.

Typically the final standings in the All-Sports race can come down to the wire.  Not this year.  Denison's stellar spring season allowed the Big Red to pull away from the field.  Denison outdistanced second-place DePauw by 21.5 points tying for the second-largest margin of victory in the 32-year history of the conference.  This matches Denison's 21.5 point win in 2000.  Denison's 28-point win in 1999 remains the largest margin of victory in the history of the All-Sports Championship.

"Winning the All-Sports Trophy is a stated goal for us each and every year," said Director of Athletics Nan Carney-DeBord.  "I am proud of all of our student-athletes and coaches that have played such a key role in this achievement.  It is a shared accomplishment that the entire Denison Community can take pride in."

Men's swimming & diving won its eighth-straight conference championship in February, becoming the first of five programs to add to the college's total of 135 conference championships.  Women's basketball followed days later with its fourth conference title and first since 2011.

In the spring, men's lacrosse secured its 16th NCAC Championship after running the table in league play with an 8-0 record.  Women's lacrosse won its record 18th league title by also going unbeaten in conference play.  DU's fifth conference championship of 2015-16 came from women's tennis who returned to the top spot for the first time since 2011 and the 12th time overall.

Denison also posted four second-place finishes.  The women's soccer team went 6-2 in the NCAC and went on to host the first and second rounds of the NCAA Division III Tournament before finishing its season with a 16-5 record.  Women's swimming & diving was the runner-up after hosting the conference championships for the third consecutive year.  The men's tennis team fell to Kenyon in the NCAC championship match and the Big Red women's outdoor track & field team logged its best showing (second-place) since winning the 2004 championship.

Third-place finishes were also secured by field hockey, women's indoor track & field, women's golf, softball and baseball.

With the victory, Denison earns the Dennis M. Collins Trophy for the 15th time and the fourth time in the last six years.  DU captured nine consecutive All-Sports Championships from 1998-2006.  Denison has placed first or second in the All-Sports standings in 26 of the conference's 32 years of existence.  In the team championship race, Denison's five championships kept them in second place with 135 titles since 1984-85.

(L-R) Nan Carney-DeBord, Lynn Schweizer, Dr. Kirk Combe, Denison President, Dr. Adam Weinberg, Dr.  Sonya McKay, Sara Lee, Dr. Brian Hortz and Craig Hicks pose with the 2015-16 Dennis M. Collins All-Sports Championship on Deeds Field.
