GREENWOOD – Lander University is the co-recipient of the 2018-19 Peach Belt Conference Team Sportsmanship Award for women's golf, the league office announced Thursday. The Bearcats share the honor with Flagler.
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 award marks the third overall award for Lander, joining the 2008-09 honor for men's golf and the 2014-15 award for volleyball.
