Flagler Wins PBC Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award
HILTON HEAD, SC -- Flagler College received their second
consecutive PBC Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award at the
annual meetings in Hilton Head on Tuesday night. Flagler
becomes the first school to earn the award in consecutive seasons
since it was founded in 2008. The award is given annually to
the institution displaying the best overall sportsmanship for the
2011-12 season and culminates the PBC’s season-long
sportsmanship recognition program.
The program presented an award following each championship season to the team in that sport that best exemplified the spirit of sportsmanship and generally conducted themselves with a high degree of integrity, character and class. The team award is selected by other teams who competed in that sport. Points were awarded based on how each team finished in the voting.
The Saints once again led the Peach Belt Conference, earning team sportsmanship awards in four sports in 2011-12. The Saints won in softball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball and men’s cross country and have taken 13 team sportsmanship awards in the last three years, more than any other PBC institution.
