Softball Selected By PBC as Sportsmanship Winner

Complete List of Winners

AUGUSTA, GA – The North Georgia softball team has been selected as the Team Sportsmanship Award Winner by the Peach Belt Conference, season-long program to recognize hard work, character, and integrity by each sport.

The Saints are currently the #1 team in the country, continuing a banner season that has seen them take the Peach Belt Conference regular season championship, the PBC Tournament championship, and the Southeast Dahlonega Regional Championship. North Georgia will host Carson-Newman College over the weekend in a best of three series with the winner advancing to the Division II College World Series.

The Peach Belt Conference presents an award following each championship season to the team in that sport that best exemplifies sportsmanship and generally conducts themselves with a high degree of integrity, character and class.

The team sportsmanship award is selected by other teams who compete in that sport. Points are awarded based on how each team finished in the voting and at the end of the year, the institution with the highest totals will receive the ‘PBC Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award.’
