EKU, AP earn track
sportsmanship honor

The Eastern Kentucky men’s team and the Austin Peay women’s team are the recipients of the OVC 2012-13 Team Sportsmanship Awards for outdoor track and field.
Voted on by the student-athletes and coaches of the respective sports, the team awards are bestowed upon the conference squads deemed to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical behavior as outlined by the OVC and NCAA. Included in the areas for evaluation are the conduct of student-athletes, coaches, staff and administrators and fans.
The 2012-13 school year marks the eighth year the team sportsmanship honors have been awarded. This marks the second award for the EKU men’s team (they also won in 2007) and also for the APSU women’s team (they last won in 2011).
The Eastern Kentucky men’s squad finished fourth at this year’s OVC Outdoor Championship. The Austin Peay women’s track and field team was eighth at the OVC Outdoor Championship in 2013.
In 1995, the OVC implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement.”
