The second-place finish is the third for the Blue Jays this decade. The women's swimming team contributed 38.5 points with a 35th-place finish at the NCAAs. The Johns Hopkins men's and women's swimming teams have combined for over 100 points in the Directors' Cup in each of the last 10 years.

Hopkins grabbed an additional 39 points in wrestling as the Blue Jays qualified a pair of wrestlers for the NCAA Championships. Senior Eric Fishel led the way a the NCAAs as he became the first wrestler in program history to earn All-America honors as he placed eighth in the 184-pound weight class. Patrick Stanley also qualified for the NCAAs and wrestled three matches before being eliminated.
