The Albany State University Lady Rams were named recipients of the 2011-2012 SIAC Commissioner’s Women’s All-Sports Award, presented to the athletic team for outstanding athletic performance during the season. This marks the Lady Rams’ eighth award in the past nine years since the awards program was re-established during the 2003-2004 season. The Lady Rams teams tallied 24 points after winning the SIAC title in track and field and second-place finishes in both volleyball and cross country.

The trophy was presented to ASU Athletics Director Dr. Richard H. Williams by SIAC Commissioner Greg Moore during the SIAC’s Summer Meeting in Atlanta this week.

“We are extremely proud of our Lady Rams teams for their outstanding seasons,” Dr. Williams said. “Winning the SIAC Commissioner’s award is a testament of the caliber of student-athletes at Albany State and we appreciate the level of competition they bring to their sports.”

Kentucky State University women’s teams finished in second place with 18 points after winning the volleyball title, finishing third in both cross country and softball. The Fort Valley State University and Tuskegee women tied for third place with 17 points each. The FVSU Lady Wildcats, who won the award last year, finished with a conference title in basketball and second in tennis while the TU Lady Tigers won a conference title in tennis and finished second in basketball.

Benedict College won their first men’s All-Sports Award. The Tigers scored 31 points after winning a conference title in basketball, along with three second-place finishes in cross country, track & field and golf. Morehouse College finished in second place with 28 points. The Maroon Tigers won conference titles in both cross country and track & field, while finishing third in both tennis and golf. Paine College and Stillman College were tied for third place with 17 points each. Paine won a conference title in golf and finished second in baseball, while Stillman won the conference title in baseball and finished second in tennis. The Golden Rams teams finished in fifth place with 17 points.

The prestigious Commissioner’s All-Sports Awards are presented to the men’s and women’s athletic departments who have excelled athletically within the conference and the teams that record the best combined total of sports award based on a points system. Ten points are awarded for each SIAC championship or first-place finish, with seven points for second-place finishes and four points for third place finishes to deter determine the All-Sports standings for the SIAC’s 13-member institutions. Football is determined by their finish during the regular season. Since the men’s & women’s basketball tournament is not double elimination and does not offer a consolation game, no points are awarded for finishing third.
