The All-Sports Award is given annually to the RRAC athletic program that performs best across the conference's sports in a given academic year. Points are awarded to the top five teams in regular season conference standings using a 10-8-6-4-2 scoring system, while results in conference tournaments and championship events merit additional points on a 5-4-3-2-1 basis. In sports such as cross country, golf, and track & field, postseason team finishes are awarded regular season and postseason points.  

OLLU had a fast start in the fall by winning four conference regular season and championship event titles in men's and women's cross country, women's soccer, and volleyball. The wins in men's cross country and volleyball were the first time OLLU has won conference championships in those sports. The Saints followed with the #1 ranked women's basketball team in the country and a conference title in that sport before adding a championship in men's golf. OLLU was also among the top five in men's basketball, men's and women's track & field, baseball and softball. 

Wiley College landed its third straight runner-up finish. The Wildcats won the RRAC men's soccer tournament along with both the men's and women's track titles. They were the second place team in men's and women's cross country, and they climbed to third in volleyball this year. 

Conference newcomer University of Houston-Victoria and Langston University tied for third in the all-sports standings. UHV won its first conference championship in softball, while finishing second in men's soccer, baseball and men's golf. Langston won the RRAC men's basketball tournament and notched second-place finishes in men's and women's basketball and men's track & field. 

They were followed by LSU Alexandria, the University of St. Thomas and the University of the Southwest. LSUA won the men's basketball and baseball regular season titles in addition to the RRAC softball tournament. UST was crowned the conference's men's soccer champs and finished second in three other sports. USW had its best year, scoring points across six sports and finishing seventh in the all-sports race.
