Delta Athletics Year in Review

Mustang Athletics had arguably their best year ever during the 2014-15 season. Delta finished 7th in California in the National Alliance of Two-Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA) Cup, and 21st in the nation in the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup. These are Delta’s highest finishes ever in these Cup awards.

These Cups are the best measure of the competitive success of an entire athletic department. Both Cups recognize the success of two-year collegiate athletic departments based on team placement in the post-season championships. There are over 100 athletic departments competing in the NATYCAA Cup, and over 650 athletic departments competing in the Learfield Cup.
