NEC Release
Somerset, N.J. (June 15, 2016) --
The Mount St. Mary's University women's lacrosse team earned the Northeast Conference Team Sportsmanship Award, as announced today by the league office.

Instituted by league Presidents in 2008, the award is designed to acknowledge the team in each conference sport that, in the opinion of its peers, most closely demonstrates good sportsmanship based on the NEC Principles of Sportsmanship and Standards of Conduct. Voting is conducted at the conclusion of each season by each team and head coach, who rank teams within the conference based on a set of criteria.

The Mount women's lacrosse team has now earned the award in three straight seasons and four times overall (2011, 2014-16) since the inception in 2008.
