It’s a simple process, each sport gets points dependent on final, end of year rankings. If you don’t place, you get 0 points…If you win a national championship, 100. This year, State finished 23rd among all 293 Division 1 institutions. That ranking is the second best ever in school history.
But State should have been higher. 18th, to be exact.
Due to baseball being unable to “fully compete” in the CWS, they were awarded 5 total points. If they were to get, let’s say 80 for a fourth place finish, State would have moved up to 18th in the rankings. That would have been just below their only better year of 15th in 2017-18.
Amazing Sports Season
Nonetheless, it’s been an amazing year for Pack sports.

- Women’s Cross Country (2nd)
- Wrestling (6th)
- Women’s Swimming and Diving (2nd)
- Men’s Swimming and Diving (8th)
- Women’s Basketball (9th)
- Women’s Tennis (3rd)
- Baseball (***Whatever***)
