"It is the third consecutive all-sports trophy win for the Tigers." DePauw totaled 902.5 points to runner-up Trinity's 860 points.
The statement adds, "All told, DePauw finished the 2007-08 season with seven team sports titles, including previous won championships in women's cross country, field hockey, men's swimming and diving and women's basketball."
