Spring All-Sportsmanship Selections Announced

Honor Recognizes Positive Contributions to Sport Within Conference

HADLEY, Mass. – The New England Small College Athletic Conference has announced the All-Sportsmanship Team for each spring sport sponsored by the conference. 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.

The All-Sportsmanship Team recognizes student-athletes from each varsity sport who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to sportsmanship. These student-athletes exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents, and spectators. They display sportsmanship not only as a participant in their sport but also as a spectator and in their everyday lives. Through their positive actions and example, these student-athletes inspire others to adhere to the quality of sportsmanship that the NESCAC and the NCAA endorse.

A total of 18 individuals on the All-Sportsmanship Team also earned All-Conference accolades this spring, with five of the 18 represented among the men's tennis honorees. Seven student-athletes received All-Sportsmanship recognition for the second time in as many years, and of the seven, seniors Victoria Aiello (Milton, Mass.) of Middlebury and Katharine Lotz (Montclair, N.J.) of Tufts took home All-Sportsmanship for the third year in a row.

Among the honorees on the Spring All-Sportsmanship Team were a pair of competitors selected as the NESCAC Player of the Year in their respective sport. From Williams, Allison Hart (Roswell, Ga.) earned honors in softball this season, as she closed out her career with Player of the Year and All-NESCAC First Team this spring. Hart's prowess at the plate was evident all season. She finished atop the NESCAC stat sheet with a remarkable .540 batting average, connecting for 74 hits with 21 of those going for extra bases, and had a .568 on-base percentage. Hart's league-leading totals in hits, doubles (14), and runs scored (49) represented half of the categories in which she set a single-season Williams record. She also stole 22 bases (22-for-27) and only struck out twice in 146 plate appearances.

Joining Hart in winning top honors in this spring was the Ephs' Felix Sun (Potomac, Md.). The 2010 NESCAC Rookie of the Year, Sun added All-NESCAC honors to his resume for the third year in a row with a second consecutive appointment to the Singles First Team. Playing in the number two position in the Ephs' ladder, Sun is 16-1 since the start of the spring portion of the Williams schedule with 15 of his 16 victories coming in straight sets. During the fall, Sun reached the semifinals of the USTA/ITA New England Regional Championship. He advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA singles championship on Thursday.

The Spring All-Sportsmanship Team was created by the NESCAC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). The NESCAC SAAC serves as the liaison between the student-athletes of NESCAC member institutions and conference administrators. The committee provides a voice to represent the concerns of all student-athletes and to discuss issues impacting student-athlete well-being. The NESCAC SAAC represents all students who participate in intercollegiate athletics and promotes and celebrates student-athletes achievements.
