Columbus State, Georgia Southwestern Win Women's Soccer Team Sportsmanship Award
Columbus State University and Georgia Southwestern State
University will both receive the 2011 women's soccer Team
Sportsmanship Award, the league announced on Tuesday. The Peach
Belt Conference presents one such award for each of its 13
championship sports, the award is voted on by other teams in that
sport with Columbus State and Georgia Southwestern both receiving
the same point totals to share the women's soccer award.
CSU and GSW are the only two women's soccer teams to have ever won the award. Columbus State took it in 2008 and 2010 with GSW winning in 2009. This is the fourth year of the awards program.
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 in June, the institution with the highest totals will receive the ‘PBC Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award.’
The league’s Senior Woman Administrators will oversee the program.
