Saint John’s University has won the MIAC’s George Durenberger All-Sports Trophy for the third consecutive academic year in 2023-24. The university secured the regular-season title in basketball, marking its fourth win in the last six seasons. Additionally, SJU achieved four second-place finishes (baseball, golf, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field) and two third-place finishes (football, swimming & diving) in the conference standings. The team earned a total of 83 points, surpassing Bethel (77), Gustavus Adolphus (76.5), St. Olaf (75), and Carleton (71).

This victory marks the Johnnies’ 17th MIAC All-Sports title since 1968-69. Saint John’s or St. Thomas has claimed the George Durenberger Trophy every year except one (Gustavus in 2003-04) since the 1979-80 season. The men’s and women’s MIAC All-Sports trophies were established in the 1963-64 school year by Bob Schabert, who reported on the MIAC for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The men’s trophy, named after long-time SJU athletic director George Durenberger ’28, was donated by the Saint John’s University J-Club before the 1972-73 academic year.
