Fall All-Sportsmanship Selections Announced

Honor Recognizes Positive Contributions to Sport Within Conference

HADLEY, Mass. – The New England Small College Athletic Conference announced the 2011 Fall All-Sportsmanship Team for each 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 example, these student-athletes inspire others to adhere to the quality of sportsmanship that the NESCAC and the NCAA endorse.

Of the 86 individuals selected for All-Sportsmanship honors, 14 were also recognized as All-Conference in their respective sport. Four members of the Golf All-Sportsmanship Team also garnered All-NESCAC accolades, the fourth consecutive year  that the group has led in that category.

Seven individuals repeated as All-Sportsmanship Team selections from a year ago: men’s cross country senior Erik Antokal (Park Ridge, N.J.) of Tufts, women’s cross country senior Chelsea Ward-Waller (Washington, D.C.) of Middlebury and Tufts junior Lilly Fisher (Kansas City, Mo.), Connecticut College field hockey senior Elizabeth Rosenfeld (Leola, Pa.), golf seniors Harry Smith (Locust Valley, N.Y.) of Colby and Alex Bermingham (Bedford, N.Y.) of Trinity, and Williams men’s soccer senior Nick Pugliese (Rochester, N.Y.).

Wesleyan senior linksman Peter Taylor (East Greenwich, R.I.) garnered All-Sportsmanship for the second time in his career, as he was previously honored in 2009, while Colby senior volleyball standout Caitlin Burchill (Walpole, Mass.) became a three-time honoree. Burchill earned recognition in 2008 and again in 2009.

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.
