ACCAC places ix among top 100 in annual NATYCAA Cup

  The ACCAC placed six teams among the top 100 nationally in the annual NATYCAA/Daktronics Cup.

  NATYCAA (National Association of Two-Year College Athletic Administrators) compiles a survey each year of how NJCAA schools fare in national championship competition. The award is broken down into scholarship and non-scholarship divisions with NJCAA Divisions I and II comprising the scholarship division and NJCAA III the non-scholarship level. All ACCAC teams are in either Divisions I or II. There are more than 400 schools in those two divisions.

  The list is compiled by awarding points for placing at NJCAA title events. The championship team receives 20 points, second place 19 and so on to 20th place.

  This year the Cup survey had to be curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. No spring championships were held, nor were several winter events.

  Mesa was the top ACCAC school listed in the annual rankings in a tie for 13th place. Other conference schools ranking among the top 100 were: Central Arizona, 22nd; Scottsdale, tied for 37th; Paradise Valley, tied for 44th; Pima, tied for 68th, and Arizona Western, tied for 90th.
