Tallahassee, Fla. –


The Florida State University’s athletics department hosted the 9th Annual Golden ‘Nole Award Banquet on Monday night at the University Center Club. The awards were created to recognize the outstanding overall achievement by FSU student-athletes and athletic teams.


“This is a rather unique event within college athletics,” said Pam Overton, Associate Athletics Director for Student Services at Florida State. “We bring our athletes from all our sports together in one place to honor them for their excellence both on and off the field. We these awards we recognize individuals and teams who excelled at students, in the arena of community service, and who represented the university with the highest standards. All that is in addition to an outstanding athletic performance. ”


The highlight of the evening every year is the awarding of the Athletic Director’s Cup, which goes to the FSU team that accumulated the most hours of community service per team member. The winner of the 2003 award was the women’s golf team, which was fresh of a tournament win this past weekend at the Ryder/Florida Championship in Miami Lakes.


“We are very proud of our student-athlete population and this night gives great testimony to the positive impact they have on this university and our community,” said Director of Athletics Dave Hart. “This is always one of my favorite events of the year. It makes me very proud to be a Seminole and it is proper that we recognize the overall excellence of our student-athletes.”
