A traveling All-Sports Trophy is awarded to the college that accumulates the best all-sports record during the MIAC academic year. The MIAC All-Sports trophies had its beginnings in the 1963-64 school year, when Bob Schabert, who, at the time, covered the MIAC for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, began determining men's all-sports results.
The current men's trophy, the George Durenberger Trophy, was donated by Saint John's University beginning in the 1972-73 school year. The women's trophy, the Pat Wiesner Trophy, was donated by Macalester College beginning in the 1983-84 school year, a year after women's sports competition began in the MIAC. The namesake of the George Durenberger Trophy served as the Johnnies' athletic director for 41 years and represented SJU and the MIAC as a student-athlete, coach and administrator for nearly five decades. Pat Wiesner was the Scots' first female athletic director and coached tennis, volleyball, swimming, field hockey and basketball in her 35 years as an educator at Macalester.
The MIAC All-Sports competition takes a comprehensive look at each institution's performance within the Conference to award an overall champion for each gender. The men's competition began in 1963-64, with the women's competition being added in 1983-84. Starting in the 2003-2004 season, first-place points were ruled to be determined by the number of teams participating in each sport. Second-place, third-place, et cetera, receive points in a descending order, based on the first-place point total. Ties in the standings result in the two teams tied sharing the points equally for all tied spots in the standings. Conference champion points are listed in bold.
