ATLANTA -- Benedict College received the SIAC Commissioner's Men's All-Sports Award for the 2011-2012 sports season. This is the first time in school history that the Tigers have won the award.

"This is a tremendous accomplishment for Benedict College," said Willie Washington, Director of Athletics. "This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication by our coaching staff and student-athletes. Hopefully this is the first of many more."

In second place was Morehouse College with a total of 28 points. The Maroon Tigers won conference titles in both cross country and track & field while finishing third in both tennis and golf, falling just short of their fifth consecutive all-sports award.

Finishing tied for third in the standing with 17 points each were Paine College and Stillman College. The Lions won a conference title in golf and finished second in baseball while the Tigers won the conference title in baseball and finished second in tennis.

SIAC Commissioner's Women's All-Sports Award went to Albany State with 24 points. Benedict finished in fourth place with 11 points. Benedict picked up seven points for a second-place finish in women's track and field and four point for a third-place finish in women's tennis.
