Emory & Henry Student-Athletes Named To 2013-14 ODAC Sportsmanship Teams

FOREST, Va. – Thirteen Emory & Henry College student-athletes were recognized by the Old Dominion Athletic Conference as a part of the 2013-14 ODAC Sportsmanship Teams. This marks the fifth year the league has recognized student-athletes for their excellence in sportsmanship.

“I am pleased that the conference recognizes student-athletes for their focus on fair play and sportsmanship," said ODAC Commissioner Brad Bankston. "The conference prides itself on positive sportsmanship and encouraging student-athletes to lead by example. Each one of the honorees has been selected by the coaches in recognition of their conduct in the arena.”

The ODAC has a rich tradition in promoting fair play and good sportsmanship in each sport across the league.  The character of the conference’s student-athletes on and off the field is a representation of not only the individuals and teams, but also the institutions they play for.
