Four Selected To Spring ODAC StellarOne Sportsmanship Teams

FOREST, Va. – The Old Dominion Athletic Conference has released the ODAC/StellarOne Sportsmanship Teams for the spring 2013 season. One hundred three student-athletes across 11 sports were honored from 14 ODAC schools.

Emory & Henry’s selections were baseball senior pitcher Jessup Lambert (Fries, Va.), softball junior centerfielder Cortney Halsey (Independence, Va.), men’s tennis senior Webster Gilley (Bristol, Tenn.) and women’s tennis freshman Taylor Evans (Weber City, Va.).

“I am pleased that the conference recognizes student-athletes for their focus on fair play and sportsmanship," explained 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. My hat is off to these student-athletes - thanking them for the example they set for all of us.”

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 for which they play.

“All of us at StellarOne Bank are excited to be an official corporate sponsor, touching the lives of so many in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference,"
said Angela Ross, Chief Branding Officer for StellarOne.
