Fall All-Sportsmanship Selections Announced


Honor Recognizes Positive Contributions to Sport Within Conference

– A total of 86 student-athletes have been named to the 2012 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 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 honored this fall, 10 were also recognized as All-Conference in their respective sports. Three members of the Golf and Men’s Soccer All-Sportsmanship Teams also garnered All-NESCAC accolades.

Middlebury junior Emily Attwood and Wesleyan senior Julia Mark were both members of the NESCAC Women’s Cross Country All-Conference Second Team.

Meanwhile, Hamilton senior linebacker Mike MacDonald was a member of the NESCAC Football All-Conference First Team.

Sophomores William Burchill of Trinity and Jake Goldenring of Williams were First Team All-NESCAC performers in golf, while junior linksman Greg Scott of Hamilton was a Second Teamer.

Junior forward Billy Hawkey of Connecticut College and senior defender Matt Ratajczak of Williams were members of the Men’s Soccer First Team, while Tufts sophomore midfielder Kento Nakamura was selected to the Second Team.

Bowdoin junior defender Rebecca Stoneman was also a member of the Women’s Soccer All-NESCAC Second Team.

Eight individuals repeated as All-Sportsmanship Team selections from a year ago. Among those was senior cross country runner Lilly Fisher (pictured right) of Tufts, who was honored for the third consecutive year.

Golfers Eric Kimball of Bates, Alex Butensky of Amherst and Alex Zoringer of Tufts were selected for the second year in a row. They were joined by soccer players Cabell Maddux of Wesleyan and Lucy Wagner of Middlebury along with volleyball players Sarah Pfund of Hamilton and Kim Farris of Wesleyan.

Mark and Scott were named to the squad in 2010.

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.
