Respect and Class… These NEC Teams Have Plenty of It

The Northeast Conference recognized those teams that best competed with dignity and respect this past winter sports season.

For the ninth year running, the league handed out a Team Sportsmanship Award in the sports of men’s basketball, women’s basketball, women’s swimming & diving, men’s indoor track & field, women’s indoor track & field and women’s bowling.

Wagner was the only school to produce multiple winners this winter. The Seahawks picked up a fourth consecutive award for women’s swimming & diving and added the honor in men’s indoor track & field.

Saint Francis U men’s basketball, Caldwell women’s bowling and St. Francis Brooklyn women’s indoor track & field were all repeat recipients.

Since the NEC Team Sportsmanship program was instituted in 2008, Saint Francis U has won a conference-best 35 awards.

The NEC’s Team Sportsmanship Award winners were chosen through a vote of team captains and coaches from throughout the conference.
