San Antonio - Five Trinity Tigers have been tabbed for the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Fall All-Sportsmanship Team.
The conference places a special emphasis on sportsmanship throughout the year. The fall sports coaches were each asked to select a student-athlete who exhibited sportsmanship during the season.
Senior Emma MacEachern and sophomore Colton Hawkins were named the respective women’s and men’s cross country representatives to the All-Sportsmanship Team. MacEachern made the All-Sportsmanship Team for the second straight year. She earned All-SCAC and All-South/Southeast Region accolades, and competed in the NCAA Division III Championship.
