Six Camels Named to 2011 NESCAC All-Sportsmanship Team
NEW LONDON, Conn.--The New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) announced the 2011 Fall All-Sportsmanship Team for each sport sponsored by the conference and six Camels were named to the squad.
Seniors Hoitt McAllister (McLean, Va.), Libby Maret (Sandy Hook, Conn.), Liz Rosenfeld (Leola, Pa.), Oscar Brown (Ridgefield, Conn.) and Jacqui Durand (Sudbury, Mass.) were joined by freshman Anelise Hohl (Atherton, Calif.) on the All-Sportsmanship team.
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.
McAllister provided leadership and depth for the Camel men's cross country team that placed sixth at the 2011 NESCAC Championship. Maret, a tri-captain for the improved women's cross country team, was the team's top finisher at the Eastern College Athletic Conference Championship Nov. 5.
A two-year captain and leader in the backfield for the field hockey team, Rosenfeld shared the league lead with three defensive saves this fall.
Brown was honored on the 2011 All-NESCAC Men's Soccer second team along with classmate and 2010 All-Sportsmanship selection Isaac Hancock (Gettysburg, Pa.). The Men's soccer squad posted its second winning season in the past three years.
Durand was a defensive standout and leader for the improving Camel women's soccer team that held four teams scoreless this fall.
On the volleyball court, Hohl made an immediate impact with a team-leading 45 blocks to help lead the Camels (18-9) to their seventh consecutive appearance in the NESCAC Championship Tournament.
