After an academic year that has seen UConn win three national championships as an university, both the men and women sit in the top-two of the Capital One Cup standings.
Points are earned based off of a team’s top-10 finishes in Division I NCAA championships and final coaches polls. The school who wins receives the trophy and $400,000 in student-athlete scholarships.
The Huskies’ basketball programs swept the titles last month in semi-improbable fashion – the men as a number-7 NCAA tournament seed and the women finishing with a perfect 40-0 record. UConn’s field hockey team also claimed their third national championship in November, defeating Duke 2-0 in Virginia.
The men’s soccer team had a #9 overall ranking after making it’s third straight NCAA quarterfinal berth. Men’s hockey finished with a winning record this season, and track and field won the inaugural AAC indoor crown.
For the women, track and field came in second in The American Championships in March. Cross country also grabbed third place in the American Championships.
Winners of the Capital One Cup will be honored at the ESPY awards in July.
