Winter All-Sportsmanship Selections Released

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 were women’s basketball player Val Beckwith (Woburn, Mass.) of Bates and Trinity men’s squash player Gustav Detter (Malmoe, Sweden). The 2009 NESCAC Women’s Basketball Player of the Year, Beckwith led her squad in scoring for the third year in a row as she ranked second overall in the league with 18.3 points per game - a single-season career-high - while hitting an even 45.0-percent of her shots. Detter, the 2009 NESCAC Men’s Squash Player of the Year, went 13-1 during the 2008-09 campaign and has a career record with the Bantams of 65-11. Of the 22 men’s and women’s squash players honored on the All-Sportsmanship team, 10 received All-Conference recognition this season.

The Winter 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.
