The men's team came up short, however, in its effort to recapture the national title. For the second straight year, the top spot on the men's podium went to Denison University, which had snapped Kenyon's thirty-one-year winning streak in 2011. The Lords again took second place. And for the third year running, the Ladies finished fourth. Emory University claimed its third straight women's championship, followed by Williams College and Denison. The Denison and Emory teams are both coached by former Lords—Denison by Gregg Parini '82 and Emory by Jon Howell '90.
