BURNSVILLE, MN – As spring sports concluded earlier this month for the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC), the final All-Sports Award points were tallied.
According to a release from the league office in Burnsville, Minnesota, Augustana was crowned overall champion as well as finishing first in the men’s and women’s standings.
The Vikings earn the award for the sixth time since joining the league in 2008. Augustana amassed 226.3 points to finish 29.8 points ahead of second place Minnesota State-Mankato. Augustana, Minnesota Duluth, Minnesota State-Mankato and Winona State remain the only institutions to earn the award in its 20+ year history.
Augustana has now earned the all-sports award in 2010-11, 2011-12, 2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2021-22.
Wayne State College finished 10th with 108 points in the overall standings as the Wildcat men’s teams (45) and women’s teams (63) both finished ninth.
Since 2017-18, the NSIC recognizes an overall champion along with a men’s and a women’s champion. Augustana also earned the men’s and women’s awards as it scored 96.3 points in men’s sports and 130 in women’s sports. The Vikings will be presented their awards on Tuesday, July 12 at the NSIC Hall of Fame Banquet in Moorhead, Minnesota.
Augustana won eight regular-season titles during the 2021-22 academic year, including football, men’s & women’s cross country, men’s basketball, baseball, softball, women’s golf and women’s tennis.
The NSIC All Sports Award is calculated by awarding the winner of each conference-sponsored championship points totaling the number of teams in that sport plus one. The next place finisher receives points totaling the number of teams less the number of places from first place. Ties in the standings at any level result in the totaling of points and equal distribution.
