Tritons claim another Daktronics Cup title

For the fifth consecutive season - and 11th time overall - Iowa Central has finished atop the Daktronics Cup standings.

The Tritons recorded 166 points to place first in the NJCAA scholarship division. ICCAC rival Iowa Western was a distant second with 137.5 points followed by Barton County and Monroe. 

In men's sports, Iowa Central picked up 90 points, with women's sports garnering another 76. 

The Tritons used national championship performances in women's cross country, women's bowling and men's track to score big points, with the men's bowling and women's track and field teams earning national runner-up finishes. 

Iowa Central was also third in men's cross country and fourth in women's swimming. 

Herkimer County was first in the non-scholarship division with Mt. San Antonio College winning the state associations title. 

Colleges in each division are allowed to use their top five finishes per gender at their highest level of competition to earn points for the Daktronics Cup. The champions of each competition score 20 points, second place scores 19, third place 18, etc. This is the second year that Daktronics has sponsored this award in conjunction with the National Alliance fo Two-Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA). 

Now in its 32nd year, NATYCAA is the professional organization of two-year college athletics administrators and membership open to all two-year institutions from throughout the country. NATYCAA is administered by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), which is in its 55th year.
