Written by Sean Dahlin

NEWPORT NEWS, Va.—The 2012-13 Virginia Sports Information Directors All-Sports College Division Survey results were announced today as Christopher Newport University won for the fifth consecutive time with a .762 winning percentage while Southern Virginia University finished 15th out of 28 athletics programs in the rankings.

“It’s rewarding to see that our athletics programs rank within the top-15 in the state,” said Athletic Director Scott Y. Doxey. “Although it is good to receive the recognition, we’ll look to improve upon that ranking this upcoming year.”

The VaSID All-Sports College Division Survey lists the overall winning percentages of each of the 28 NCAA Division II, III, NAIA and USCAA men’s and women’s athletics programs in the state of Virginia.

Of the 13 Southern Virginia men’s and women’s varsity programs, the teams finished 101-115-1 (.468) overall for the Knights’ lowest marks in wins (101), winning percentage (.468) and ranking (21st) since the 2006-07 season.

The Southern Virginia men’s seven athletics teams—baseball, basketball, cross country, football, lacrosse, soccer and tennis—registered a 57-53 record and .518 winning percentage, ranking 12th of all 25 listed college division men’s programs in the state highlighted by the 2012-13 Knights men’s basketball squad that finished with a 17-7 (.708) record and extended its program-best home winning streak to 28 games.

For the third consecutive year, the 2012-13 Southern Virginia’s men’s teams recorded a .500-plus percentage. The Knights won 66.4 and 57.1-percent of their contests in 2010-11 and 2011-12 respectively.

On the women’s side, the six female varsity programs—basketball, cross country, soccer, tennis and volleyball—placed 21st out of 27 and combined for a 44-62 (.407) mark, headlined by Southern Virginia women’s cross country’s second straight USCAA national championship last fall.

Southern Virginia women’s athletics finished with its lowest ranking (21st) and winning percentage (.407) since 2006-07 as well.
