In the 2010-11 NACDA Director's Cup:
34 - Louisville
40 - West Virginia
44 - UConn
53 - TCU
61 - Syracuse
100 - Butler
114 - Creighton
123 - Pitt
150 - Cincinnati (tied with Eastern Washington, Marist, SC State, Maryland-Eastern Shore, and Xavier)

FWIW, we finished 83rd this year. That's quite an improvement over where we were just a few years ago. We've actually finished second in the AAC (Tulsa was tops at 68).

And Tulsa has national championship caliber athletics in some gazebo-related sports that we don't participate in. Us not having a Softball team is really a big misstep, but we definitely do not have the space or facilities to add it.

Her contract is too cost prohibitive to not just let her coach it out. Relative to that sport anyway.

I think that it's about time that UC starts a women's fast pitch softball team. Cincinnati has loads of talent in the city and it's not a terribly expensive sport.

It is expensive. The reason we have lacrosse and not softball is purely about money. With lacrosse you have the same number of scholarships, but about a third the number of games. So you cut a ton of expenses in travel, staff for running events, etc. by going that route.
