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 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 examples, these student-athletes inspire others to adhere to the quality of sportsmanship that the NESCAC and the NCAA endorse.

Thirteen of the All-Sportsmanship team earned All-Conference honors in some form this winter. Returning from the 2009-10 All-Sportsmanship team were 11 individuals. Wesleyan’s Cara Madden (Ipswich, Mass.) became the first student-athlete to receive the honor four years in a row, while Lauren Gesswein (Fairfield, Conn.) of Bowdoin and Harry Smith (Locust Valley, N.Y.) of Colby earned a spot on the All-Sportsmanship team for the third consecutive year. Gesswein and Smith were earlier recognized on the All-NESCAC First Team in squash.

The Winter All-Sportsmanship Team was created by the NESCAC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and two members of the group were selected on this season’s squad:  Bates senior men’s basketball player Nick Schmiemann (Weymouth, Mass.) and Colby senior women’s basketball member Karlyn Adler (Rye Brook, N.Y.). 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.
