Oklahoma Baptist won four national titles in 2012-2013 as part of a tremendous year for athletics, culminating in taking its first Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup championship.
The Bison earned points in 14 sports, although only the top 12 counted toward it 964.00 total, and easily outdistanced second place Lindsay Wilson, which had 797.00.
The four national championships in men’s and women’s swimming and indoor track and field, interestingly, all happened on the same day. OBU also finished second in men’s and women’s outdoor track and field.
After the completion of the fall and winter sports, the Bison had a 140 point lead over Lindsay Wilson and extended that difference with a strong spring campaign.
Another Sooner Athletic Conference team finished in the top 10 in the LSDC standings. Oklahoma City tallied the most points in the spring (362.00) largely due to the men’s and women’s golf titles, and finished in the 10th in the standings at 614.00 points.
