Camden County College Athletics is currently ranked as the number one Athletic Program in the country for championship success for two year Non-Scholarship Schools by NATYCAA (National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administration). This prestigious ranking is called the Daktronics Cup and is conducted by NAYTCAA. Last year Camden County College Athletics finished 10th in the Nation of this award.
The Cougars used a third-place national finish in men’s soccer, eight-place finish in men’s cross county, fourth-place finish in women’s cross country and fourth-place finish in women’s tennis to earn the points that put them in the lead in the JJCAA scholarship division. 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 Daktronics Cup (formerly NATYCAA Cup) recognizes the top programs in three divisions of two-year college intercollegiate athletics, which include all 660+ members of NATYCAA. Divisions include: NJCAA Scholarship Division, NJCAA Non-Scholarship Division and the State Associations Division. Colleges earn points based on their performance in each division’s end of the season championship events. The winners of each championship earn 20 points, second-place finishes earn 19 points, third-place finishers receive 18 points, etc. Colleges use their top-five sports finishes per gender to accumulate points toward their division’s cup standings.
The Cougars are also ranked third in the country in the Learfield Sports IMG Directors’ Cup Standings. The Learfield Director’s Cup is conducted by The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) and USA Today.
