An institution’s Hiegert Cup ranking is calculated using its top two Conference finishes in the fall, winter, and spring sports seasons, as well as the highest two other finishes, regardless of season. An institution’s numerical finish for team sports is determined by regular season standings. Individual sports finishes are determined by the finishes at the season-ending championship event.
