For the second straight year, Heps ranks sixth — behind only the big BCS conferences — in the average of NCAA Championships qualifiers per school. With 32 qualifiers — for this purpose we can’t count our three alums — the Ivies have four athletes per school. Besides the ‘big boys’ no other conference has as many as three per school.

Regionally speaking, the Big East had precisely half the number of Heps (16) while six other regional conferences — MAAC (7), Atlantic 10 (6), Northeast (4), Patriot (4), Colonial (3) and American East (2) — had a combined 26 qualifiers. Nationals will be held June 11-14 at historic Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon in Eugene, Ore.
