Fall All-Sportsmanship Selections Announced

 

Honor Recognizes Positive Contributions to Sport Within Conference

HADLEY, Mass.
– A total of 86 student-athletes have been named to the 2014 NESCAC Fall All-Sportsmanship Team. The team is composed of one student-athlete from each institution for each sport that the conference sponsors. Honorees are selected by the players and coaches from their respective teams.

The NESCAC All-Sportsmanship Team recognizes student-athletes from each varsity sport who have demonstrated outstanding sportsmanship in their respective sport. These student-athletes exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents and spectators. Through positive action and leadership, these student-athletes inspire others to adhere to the quality of sportsmanship the NESCAC and the NCAA endorse.

Of the 86 individuals honored this fall, 11 hold multiple All-Sportsmanship Team awards while five were also named to All-NESCAC teams in their respective sports.

Headlining the list is Tufts men's golf senior Alex Zorniger (Dayton, Ohio), who received his fourth All-Sportsmanship Team award. Four other men's golfers joined Zorniger as repeat honorees. Senior Bill Burchill (East Walpole, Mass.) of Trinity was previously selected to both the 2012 and 2013 teams, while Amherst junior James Line (Glastonbury, Conn.) and Middlebury senior John Louie (Soledad, Calif.) were picks last season. Williams senior Jake Goldenring (Florham Park, N.J.) earns his second All-Sportsmanship Team Award after receiving the honor in 2011. Goldenring was also an All-NESCAC Second Team performer this fall.

Earning her third All-Sportsmanship Team award was Connecticut College women's soccer senior Astrid Kempainen (Chazy, N.Y.), who was also named the 2014 NESCAC Women's Soccer Player of the Year.

In men's soccer, Tufts senior Kento Nakamura (Tokyo, Japan) has made the All-Sportsmanship Team three times, while Connecticut College senior Zach Punt (West Hartford, Conn.) received his second straight honor.

Williams men's cross country senior Aldis Inde (Edina, Minn.) has been named to the All-Sportsmanship Team for the first time in his career. He was also an All-NESCAC First Team performer. Junior Patrick Hoagland (San Diego, Calif.) of Trinity garnered his second All-Sportsmanship Team award after receiving the award in 2013.

In volleyball, junior Sarah Arvidson (Andover, Mass.) of Colby earned her second consecutive all-sportsmanship award. Joining Arvidson on the All-Sportsmanship Team was Amherst junior Katie Warshaw (Manhattan Beach, Calif.), a Second Team All-NESCAC selection.

Bates field hockey senior Jill Conway (Andover, Mass.) received her second All-Sportsmanship Team award after being named to the 2011 team, while Colby senior Kellie Walsh (Andover, Mass.) was named to the all-conference second team in field hockey.

The 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 welfare. The NESCAC SAAC represents all students who participate in intercollegiate athletics and promotes and celebrates student-athletes' achievements.
