Six Camels Named to NESCAC Fall All-Sportsmanship Team
NEW LONDON, Conn.--The New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) announced the 2010 Fall All-Sportsmanship Team for each sport sponsored by the conference and six Camels were named to the squad.
Junior Brenner Green (Lisbon, Conn.), Isaac Hancock (Gettysburg, Pa.), Kirsten Manville (Fairfax, Va.), Molly Pistrang (Princeton, Mass.), Liz Rosenfeld (Leola, Pa.), and Katie Shragge (San Diego, Calif.) represented the Camel athletic program on the team. All six of the program´s honorees were named to the NESCAC All-Academic Team this fall.
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 student-athlete selected must be in good academic standing and a member of the team at the conclusion of the season in order to be eligible for selection.
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.
Green was one of the most improved runners for the men´s cross country team and was the team´s sixth finisher at the New England Division III Championship Nov. 13. Hancock, a co-captain for the men´s soccer team, anchored the Camel defensive unit and seems to always be positioned in the right place at the time for Head Coach Kenny Murphy´s defense.
Manville performed admirably in her first season in goal for the women´s soccer team. The junior keeper recorded three shutouts and averaged 5.5 saves per game to rank third in the NESCAC in both categories. Pistrang was the women´s cross country team´s fifth scorer at the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championship Nov. 6 and should continue to build on that success as she heads into her junior season next fall.
Rosenfeld, a tri-captain for the field hockey team, is one of the league´s top defenders and also plays a critical role as the stick-stop on penalty corners. She tallied four assists and a defensive save in her junior season on the turf.
Shragge, a senior outside hitter for the highly successful Camel volleyball program, frustrated opponents with her serve and averaged .43 aces per game to rank fifth in NESCAC service aces.
