The Augustana athletics department has dominated the 2021-22 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) All-Sports Awards making this the sixth time since joining the NSIC in the 2008-09 academic year.


Augie claims the title and is nearly 30 points ahead of second-place Minnesota State. The University of Sioux Falls finished the year in 6th place.

"We couldn't be prouder of our student-athletes and the way they compete," Augustana Director of Athletics Josh Morton said. "These awards are symbolic of the broad-based excellence that we continue to achieve within our athletics department and on our campus.

In addition to the overall All-Sports Award, Augustana also claimed the men's and women's championships. The gender-specific awards have been awarded since 2017-18 and the Vikings become the first NSIC school to sweep all three awards.

Individually USF Men ranked 8th while the women claimed the 5th spot overall.

Augustana won eight regular-season NSIC Championships throughout the academic year, including football, men's & women's cross country, men's basketball, baseball, softball, women's golf, and women's tennis. In the spring alone, Augustana captured four of those championships out of a possible seven spring championships.
