Arcadia University Athletics ranked near the top third of DIII athletic programs, as ranked by the The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) 2018-19 Learfield IMG Director’s Cup standings released on June 12.

With four teams making it to the NCAA Tournaments this year, Arcadia’s Athletics placed 125th out of 338 institutions—its highest ranking since the Director’s Cup began in 1995 and 76 spots better than the University’s previous high.

“The growth and development of Arcadia Athletics in recent years has been remarkable to be part of,” Director of Athletics Brian Granata said. “This year’s results are a testament to all the hard work that our coaches, staff, and student-athletes have put in. We pride ourselves on the wide range of success of all our sports. Our work is not done. We will continue to strive for greatness as we seek to raise the profile of Arcadia Athletics.”
