Francis Marion Wins Baseball Team Sportsmanship Award
AUGUSTA, GA – The Francis Marion baseball team has been awarded the 2012 PBC Team Sportsmanship Award, the league office announced on Friday. 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.
The Team Sportsmanship Award is the first for an FMU program this year and the eighth overall in the four-year history of the 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.
