NEW LONDON, Conn.--The New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) announced the 2012 Fall All-Sportsmanship Team for each sport sponsored by the conference and six Camels were named to the squad.
Seniors Jeff Beling (Framingham, Mass.), Maura Hallisey (Wethersfield, Conn.), Emily Scribner (White River Junction, Vt.) and Carly Guiducci (Del Mar, Calif.) were joined by junior Billy Hawkey (Pennington, N.J.) and sophomore Astrid Kempainen (Chazy, N.Y.).
The All-Sportsmanship Team is composed of one student-athlete from each institution for each sport and is selected by the players and coaches from their respective team for their positive contributions to sportsmanship. The student-athlete selected must be in good academic standing and a member of the team at the conclusion of the season in order to be eligible for selection.
The All-Sportsmanship Team recognizes student-athletes from each varsity sport who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to sportsmanship. These student-athletes exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents, and spectators. They display sportsmanship not only as a participant in their sport but also as a spectator and in their everyday lives. Through their positive actions and example, these student-athletes inspire others to adhere to the quality of sportsmanship that the NESCAC and the NCAA endorse.
Beling has been a leader on the cross country trails and in the campus community, where he has publicized the accomplishments of his peers in the College Voice. As a co-captain, Hallisey provided direction and guidance for one of the most improved cross country programs in New England. In addition to her accomplishments on the turf for the field hockey team, Scribner serviced her community last summer working as an intern with an Oncologist at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire.
Guiducci was a co-captain for the successful 25-4 Camel volleyball team that hosted the NESCAC Championship and NCAA Division III Regional. She finished with a team-best 357 digs this fall.
Kempainen and her teammates team took time out of their regular schedule to participate in the third annual Ivoryton Run Local/Read Local 5k race October 20. The event benefitted the Ivoryton Library and their educational programs for children.
