UK Athletics is one step closer to reaching Mitch Barnhart's goal of a top-15 Directors' Cup finish.

Adding in the points gained from solid finishes by the men's and women's track and field teams, UK moved up to No. 13 in the latest national all-sports standings, up from 16th just nine days ago. UK ranks third among Southeastern Conference teams, trailing only Florida (No. 2) and Texas A&M (No. 11).

Final Directors' Cup standings will be released on June 19 to include baseball. With UK's regional final trip, the Wildcats are likely to move up slightly and put the finishing touches on one of the best season's in program history and eclipse last year's record No. 25 finish.

In November 2008, Barnhart unveiled his 15 by 15 by 15 plan, challenging UK to finish in the top 15 of Directors' Cup standings, win 15 conference or national championships and achieve a 3.0 department-wide grade-point average by the year 2015. UK is on pace for that top-15 finish, is in the midst of a four-semester streak with GPAs of 3.0 or better and has won 11 conference or national championships.
