ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — The Augusta women's basketball team has captured the first conference title in school history.

The Vikings claimed the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference crown with an 81-73 victory over Minnesota State-Mankato Saturday in championship game of the league tournament.

The Argus Leader reports that longtime head coach Dave Krauth wore a wide smile as he cut down the final strand of the net during the celebration in Rochester, Minn.

Vikings senior Alex Feeney, from Bismarck, N.D., says the team wanted to win the title for Krauth, who owns nearly 500 wins, nine straight 20-win seasons and now 13 NCAA tournament appearances.

Augustana will take a 24-6 record into tournament play.
