It is the 14th-consecutive season, and the 53rd out of the last 59, the Pac-12 led all conferences in NCAA titles, bringing its all-time total to 526 among its 12 universities. The 13 championships in 2018-19 is one shy of the Pac-12, and all-time, record of 14 for a single academic year. Pac-12 teams had spectacular performances to claim national championships. Colorado raced to the !nish line in !rst for the women's cross country crown and Stanford won its !rst of six NCAA titles with its nation-leading eighth volleyball national championship. The Conference swept the men's and women's swimming & diving titles each in dominant fashion, and had All-Pac-12 !nals in men's and women's water polo, and beach volleyball. UCLA capped the season winning the softball title for the league's !rst trophy in the sport in eight years. Washington swept the grand !nals at women's rowing and Utah was the skiing champion, both winning titles for the second time in three years. The successes of Pac-12 institutions throughout the academic year was most evident in the Lear!eld Sports Directors' Cup where Stanford captured its 25th-consecutive title, and six teams placed among the top 25. The success of the Pac-12 in the Cup was bolstered by the seven different institutins claiming NCAA titles, most among all conferences. In addition, nine Pac-12 league members combined to post 32 top-four !nishes in 24 NCAA championships.
