The regular season champion in each sport receives 10 points with second place receiving nine points, etc. At the conclusion of the 2015-16 season, the top six male and top six female team finishes for each institution will generate the institution's overall totals.

Campbellsville (KY ) finishes second with 110.5 points followed by Cumberlands (KY) in third with 103.5 points. Pikeville (Ky.) ends in fourth with 92 points while Georgetown finishes fifth with 88.5 points.

Cumberland's (TN) 84 points is good enough for sixth followed by Shawnee State's (Ohio) 73 points, St. Catharine's (KY) 67.5 points and Life's (GA) 49.5 points.
