Stanford Captures 6th Sears Cup! (1999-2000)

For the 6th straight year, Stanford has been awarded the Sears Directors' Cup for the overall top Division I athletics program in the country. Even though Stanford has points to gain from baseball, the trophy was officially awarded a week early due to the mathematical clinching in the standings.

1999-2000 Scoring Guidelines:

- 20 sports are counted in the standings: the top 10 scoring men's sports and the top 10 scoring women's sports

- Standings and point determination are based on the size of the bracket (the largest bracket size counted is a 64-team bracket). A separate point structure is established for individual sports (those in which teams are not placed into brackets).

- Points for Track and Field are awarded for the season in which the highest finish is gained

- Since the men have more possible sports in which to score, fencing and skiing are initially counted in the women's tally. However, these sports can be switched into the men's tally if the women score in more than their permissible number of sports. The scoring for rifle is determined by the structure of the team. Rifle is automatically counted for the gender that has a higher percentage of members on the team.

- Sport breakdown for Division I, scored with the team bracket method unless otherwise indicated:
