NESCAC announces spring all-sportsmanship honorees
Ten Hamilton College student-athletes were recognized by the NESCAC when the conference announced its 2012 spring all-sportsmanship team on May 25.
The all-sportsmanship team is comprised of one student-athlete from each institution for each sport, and is selected by the players and coaches from their respective team for their positive contributions to sportsmanship. These student-athletes exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents and spectators. Through their positive actions and examples, these student-athletes inspire others to adhere to the quality of sportsmanship that the NESCAC and the NCAA endorse.
The NESCAC, established in 1971, is comprised of 11 highly selective colleges and universities located in the Northeast. The NESCAC sponsors 26 conference championship sports (13 for men and 13 for women) while member schools offer extensive and broad-based intercollegiate, as well as club and intramural, opportunities for both men and women.
