Centenary wins coveted award

Kudos to Centenary for putting an end to Southern Utah's 4-year stranglehold on the Mid-Con's Sportsmanship Award.

In closing out their final year under Athletic Director Taylor Moore and getting direction for most of the year from Glenn Evans, the Gents and Ladies earned perhaps the league's most treasured award.

“To be given this award is a tremendous honor for our athletics department,” Centenary Assistant Athletic Director David Pratt said. “It speaks volumes about the kind of people we have working at Centenary and validates the family atmosphere we promote to our student-athletes.”

The Sportsmanship Award is given annually to the league institution that is judged by its peers to be the best in the conference in living up to the ideals of sportsmanship. Areas for evaluation include student-athlete conduct, staff/administrator conduct, coaches’ conduct and event management.

Centenary didn't bring home a lot of trophies this past year for athletic endeavors in the Mid-Con, now officially The Summit League, which makes this award just a little more sweet.
