Men's tennis earns PBC Team Sportsmanship Award

The Georgia Southwestern men's tennis team was recently named the Peach Belt Conference Team Sportsmanship Award winner by the conference office for the 2011 men's tennis season.

The sportsmanship honor is the second in three years for Coach Brennon Sewell and the Hurricanes. It's the first sportsmanship award for the university this season but the fourth overall since the PBC started the program in 2008-09. GSW won two team awards in 2009-10 for men's basketball and women's soccer.  

The PBC sportsmanship 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.
