Sierra College was No. 1 in Northern California and third in the state’s Director’s Cup Standings as ranked by the National Alliance of Two-Year College Athletic Administrators.


Sierra College took first place in both women’s golf in November and women’s swimming and diving in May.


Since the inception of the NATYCAA, Sierra College has consistently placed in the top 10, but this is the first time since 2008 that it has been in the No. 3 position, with a total point standing of 139. Mount San Antonio College in Walnut California held onto top honors with 166 points, followed by Riverside City College with 155.5 points.


A college earns points based on its team’s final positions. Each college’s top five men’s and top five women’s team results count toward the school’s total. Complete standings, scoring criteria and history of the NATYCAA Cup are available on The California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) website


NATYCAA is the professional organization of two-year college athletic administrators. Membership is open to all two-year institutions throughout the country.


The NATYCAA awards recognize and reward program excellence at two-year colleges. The criterion for the state association’s division was developed by the CCCAA in conjunction with the California Community College Sports Information Association (CCCSIA).
