GAC All-Sports Trophy Champions Once More

For the sixth time in the seven-year history of the league, Arkansas Tech University is home to the top intercollegiate athletics program in the Great American Conference.

ATU was named the 2017-18 GAC All-Sports Trophy winner by the league office on Friday, June 1.

Golden Suns and Wonder Boys teams combined to accumulate 92 points through their conference finishes in 10 sports  — baseball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, women’s cross country, football, men’s golf, women’s golf, softball, women’s tennis and volleyball — during the recently completed academic year.
