ASU Wins Sportsmanship Award

ASU Wins Sportsmanship Award

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The Augusta State Women's Cross Country program was recently honored with the Peach Belt Conference's Sportsmanship Award for the Fall, 2010 semester.

The award is the second for the Lady Jaguars in the last three seasons. ASU also won the award in 2008 in the inaugural year of the awards program.

Other fall sports winners were Flagler (volleyball and men's cross country), Francis Marion (men's soccer) and Columbus State (women's soccer).

The program presents an award following each championship season to the team in that sport that best exemplifies the spirit of sportsmanship and generally conducts themselves with a high degree of integrity, character and class.

The team award is selected by other teams who compete in that sport. Points are awarded based on how each team finished in the voting and next June, the institution with the highest totals will receive the 'PBC Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award.'

The league's Senior Woman Administrators oversee the program.
