Thanks to Jeff Z for this note in Speak Up:
Congrats to Williams on an incredible 13th straight Director’s Cup! The Ephs just barely edged out Midd thanks to a huge spring sports total. The top four are Williams, Midd, Wash U. and Amherst, which also happen to be four of the top 7-8 academic D-III schools in the country, proving once again that athletic and academic excellence can go hand-in-hand:
Congratulations to the year’s Eph athletes for another terrific year on the field/water/court, etc. I hope that we can all still appreciate what a remarkable achievement winning the Director’s Cup is each year. Winning so many in a row has a tendency to blur the achievement, in a way which is not fair to this year’s athletes.
