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.
