Gators take home second place for league sportsmanship title

New York, NY – The Sage Colleges finished in second place in the race for the 2012-2013 Skyline Conference Sportsmanship Award. For the second consecutive year, Yeshiva has captured the Skyline Conference’s Sportsmanship Trophy for displaying outstanding team sportsmanship during the 2012-13 academic year. The Skyline Conference instituted the Sportsmanship Trophy in 2007-08 to gauge team sportsmanship among its member schools.

Yeshiva compiled 567 points out of a possible 780 points for an overall rating of .726, while The Sage Colleges (.681) finished runner-up for the fourth time in six years.

A Team Sportsmanship Award is presented in each of the conference’s 17 sports. Yeshiva earned Team Sportsmanship Awards in six of the 10 sports in which they participated: baseball, women’s tennis, men’s cross country, women’s volleyball, men’s soccer and men’s volleyball.

St. Joseph’s-L.I. earned three sportsmanship awards in women’s soccer, women’s swimming and women’s lacrosse, while Mount Saint Mary (women’s cross country, men’s swimming) and NYU-Poly (women’s basketball, softball) each garnered a pair of sportsmanship honors.

A school earns points toward the Sportsmanship Trophy based upon a 10-point scale in each sport. Opposing coaches rate each team on a scale of 1 to 10 with a '1' being considered poor sportsmanship and a '10' being considered outstanding sportsmanship. A score of 5 to 6 is considered average. A school's scores in each sport are then added together and then divided by the total number of points that could possibly be earned.

Yeshiva also won the award in 2007-08 and 2008-09.
