GC Women’s Basketball Wins PBC Team Sportsmanship Award

AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Peach Belt Conference (PBC) recently announced the spring and winter season Team Sportsmanship Awards for the conference, with Georgia College Women's Basketball earning the program's first honor. The Bobcats ended a four-year run for Flagler College women's hoops for the award.

The awards program, which includes honoring one team from each of the league's 15 championship sports, will also recognize one institution with the 'Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award.'

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 league's Senior Woman Administrators oversee the program.

The Georgia College Department of Athletics, two-time winners of the PBC Commissioner's Cup, sponsors 11 varsity athletic programs at the NCAA Division II level. As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
