TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida State University hosted the 20th annual Golden Nole Awards banquet Wednesday night at the University Center Club in the Tom & Ginny Futch Ballroom. The Student Athlete Advisory Council (S.A.A.C) hosted the great event to honor the contributions Florida State student-athletes made on the field, in the classroom and in the community that often go unnoticed but are never unappreciated.

For the first time in 13 years, a new team captured the Director's Cup for Service as softball averaged 35.96 hours of community service work per student-athlete. Women's cross country came in second with 35.93 hours and women's golf came in at 35.80 hours for third in an extremely tight competition for the coveted honor.

Florida State's athletics teams combined to provide over 7,000 hours of community service, up 1,000 hours from just two years ago. Eleven teams completed over 200 hours each, with seven teams exceeding the 400 hour mark. Most of the hours come from serving local Tallahassee schools and organizations.

In front of over 500 student-athletes, coaches, administrators and guests, representatives from each team were honored as chosen by the individual head coaches. Golden Nole honorees are chosen on a combination of factors which include athletic achievement, community service, attitude and dedication. Other special awards were also presented including the Doc Fauls Award, the ACC Top Six for Service, the Jason Evans Memorial Scholarship and the Athletic Director's Cup for Service.
