2009 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 Spring All-Sportsmanship Team for each spring 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.

Of the 100 members selected to the All-Sportsmanship Team, 20 received All-Conference recognition this spring while 15 individuals earned All-Sportsmanship honors for the second year in a row. Notable members included Williams softball senior Joey Lye (Toronto, Ontario) and Tufts women’s tennis sophomore Julia Browne (Old Brookville, N.Y.). The 2009 NESCAC Softball Player of the Year, Lye garnered All-NESCAC First Team honors for the third-straight year after being selected to the Second Team during her rookie season. The top hitter in the conference in each of the past two years, Lye ranked first nationally in batting average at .563 this season.

The 2008 NESCAC Rookie of the Year, Browne was also honored on the All-Conference First Team at both Singles and Doubles. Browne went 15-1 in dual matches at the #1 position while owning a 22-3 overall singles record heading into the NCAA Women’s Tennis Individual Championship this weekend. During the fall, Browne came away with the ITA New England Region singles championship and advanced all the way to the semifinals of the ITA Small College Nationals. In doubles action, Browne has teamed up with Meghan McCooey for a 14-1 dual mark and 25-3 record overall, as the duo won the ITA Small College Doubles national championship back in October.

The Spring All-Sportsmanship Team also included Connecticut College men’s tennis sophomore Trevor Prophet (Nashua, N.H.), 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.
