LOUISBURG ATHLETICS RANKS IN NJCAA TOP 20

LOUISBURG, NC - Earlier this week the National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA) announced the winners of the 2012-13 NATYCAA Cup Standings. The Hurricanes ranked #19 among the 389 athletic programs in the scholarship division.

The NATYCAA Cup recognizes excellence in two-year college athletics based on championship competition. With the outstanding year that Hurricane athletics had, the Louisburg men earned 33 points while the Lady Canes earned 30.5 points, giving the college a total of 63.5 points which was half a point behind Spartanburg Methodist College which was the only Region X program ahead of LC.

The Hurricanes picked up ten spots on this year's list as they finished in 29th place in 2011-12 Cup standings. The 2011-12 finish was a big jump from 2010-11's 160th place finish.

Iowa Central CC took top spot on the 2012-13 list, which was their fourth straight NATYCAA Cup Championship.
