Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The UMD Bulldogs finished fourth in the contest for the 2011-12 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) all-sports award, which is handed out each year to the school with the best finish across all men's and women's sports.
Augustana was named the 2011-12 winner of the award after winning NSIC titles in men's and women's cross country, women's golf, and women's tennis.
The Bulldogs only had two first place finishes in the 2011-12 season, those coming in football and volleyball.
UMD has not won the award since the 2003-04 season, which marked the end of a five-year run for the Bulldogs.
The NSIC all-sports award has been presented since the 1999-00 season and is handed out in cooperation with U.S. Bank.
