The Florida Gators added another trophy to the case on Thursday when it was announced that the women’s program had won the 2013-14 Capital One Cup. The award, which weighs success across an entire athletic program, has been given out annually since 2010-11.
The Gators blew the field away, finishing with a total of 152 points. Next closest was UCLA with 110 points, followed by Stanford (106), Maryland (94), and Texas A&M (89).
Florida joins Stanford (2010-11, 2011-12) and North Carolina (2012-13) as women’s programs to win the Capital One Cup.
The following sports combined to give UF the title:
- Gymnastics: National Champions
- Softball: National Champions
- Indoor Track & Field: T-3rd (NCAA Championships)
- Outdoor Track & Field: 4th (NCAA Championships)
- Swimming & Diving: 6th (NCAA Championships)
- Lacrosse: 4th (Final Poll)
- Tennis: 5th (Final Poll)
- Soccer: 10th (Final Poll)
Florida’s men’s program was honored as the best in the NCAA in 2010-11 and 2011-12. With this year’s title for the women, the Gators are the first program to claim both the men’s and women’s awards.
UF’s men currently sit in third for the 2013-14 standings with 86 points, trailing Notre Dame (98.5) and Oregon (92). The winner has yet to be determined.
