Montana has won the 2011-12 Big Sky Conference Men’s All-Sports Trophy the league office announced Tuesday. It is the first Men’s All-Sports Trophy for the Grizzlies since 1970-71
and just their second since the inauguration of the Big Sky Conference in 1963.

Using points from its recent outdoor track and field title, Sacramento State won the Women’s
All-Sports Trophy for the fourth time in five years. Montana, which won its
first Women’s All-Sports Trophy last year, finished fourth.

Montana won the Men’s All-Sports Trophy because of its success in the sports weighted with the most points: football and men’s basketball. The Griz football team shared last fall’s
regular-season title. The men’s basketball team won last winter’s championship outright.

Montana, which averaged 11.75 points per sport, also won this spring’s men’s tennis championship. The three championships or co-championships were enough to offset a fourth-place
cross country finish and seventh-place finishes during both the Big Sky indoor
and outdoor championships. Hear comments from University of Montana Sports Information Director Dave Guffey below.
