Somerset, N.J. (January 16, 2019) – The Mount St. Mary's men's soccer team has earned the Northeast Conference (NEC) Team Sportsmanship Award, as announced today by the league office.
Instituted by league Presidents in 2008, the awards are 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 St. Mary's men's soccer program made its return as a varsity sport at the Mount in 2018, finishing the campaign with two victories and four draws. The Mountaineers had a pair of players earn end-of-the-year honors, as Boris Nana Tonzi was named to the All-NEC Second Team, and Jonathan Godette was selected to the All-Rookie Team.
