Southeast Missouri State University has been named the recipient of the Ohio Valley Conference’s annual Institutional Sportsmanship Award.
Presented at the league’s annual honors luncheon, the award goes to the conference institution selected by its peers to have best exhibited the standards of sportsmanship and ethical conduct as outlined by the OVC and NCAA.
The award, which was implemented in August 2003, is one of three accolades bestowed by the conference to honor sportsmanship.
This marks the eighth time the Institutional Sportsmanship Award has been bestowed and the second time Southeast Missouri has won the honor (they won the inaugural award in 2003-04).
In 1995, the Ohio Valley Conference implemented a first-of-its-kind “Sportsmanship Statement,” a policy promoting principles of fair play, ethical conduct and respect for one’s opponent.
