Adding in solid finishes by men's tennis (ninth for 64 points), women's tennis (17th for 50 points) and women's golf (55th for 18 points), UK sits in 16th place in the latest Learfield Cup Directors' Cup standings.

UK is down two spots from 14th when final winter standings were released, but is soon to get a boost from remaining spring sports.

Standings will next be tabulated on June 10 to include softball and men's golf with men's and women's track and field set to be factored in on June 19 and baseball on June 26 or 27. Men's golf posted its best finish (18th) since 2006 earlier this week, while softball is one of eight teams competing in the Women's College World Series. Baseball will play for its first-ever Super Regional bid this weekend, while the UK track and field team -- women ranked fifth, men 19th -- is in Jacksonville, Fla., for the NCAA East Preliminary Championships.

Whether UK reaches Athletics Director Mitch Barnhart's goal of a top-15 finish remains to be seen, but an all-time record performance is all but assured at this point. UK was 25th in last year's final Directors' Cup standings, the school's best finish in the 20-year history of the national all-sports standings.
