NESCAC Winter All-Sportsmanship Selections Announced

Honor Recognizes Positive Contributions to Sport Within Conference

HADLEY, Mass. - The New England Small College Athletic Conference has announced the Winter All-Sportsmanship Team for each winter sport sponsored by the conference. The All-Sportsmanship Team is composed 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 student-athlete selected must be in good academic standing and a member of the team at the conclusion of the season in order to be eligible for selection.

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.

Notable members among the 83 individuals selected to the Winter All-Sportsmanship Team are ice hockey players T.J. Kelley (Ridgefield, Conn.) of Colby and the Williams tandem of Will Bruce (Nashville, Tenn.) and Caralyn Quan (Toronto, Ontario). Kelley was recently named the 2008 NESCAC Men’s Ice Hockey Player of the Year, as he led the NESCAC in scoring this season with 19 goals and 24 assists for 43 points. Bruce and Quan are among eight finalists for the 2008 Hockey Humanitarian Award, given annually to college hockey’s finest citizen.

The Winter All-Sportsmanship Team also includes Hamilton Women’s Ice Hockey junior Kathryn Kroleski (New Rochelle, N.Y.), a member of 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.
