AUGUSTA, Ga. – The No. 11 Georgia College men's tennis team (19-7) recently earned a share of the Peach Belt Conference (PBC) Sportsmanship Award after completing their season with a second place finish in the NCAA Southeast Subregional.
The Bobcats share the award with the Georgia Southwestern State University men's tennis team. This is the second time a Georgia College team has earned the award this year, with men's basketball taking the honor.
The PBC gives out the Sportsmanship Award in each sport to the team in that best exemplifies the spirit of sportsmanship and generally conducts themselves with a high degree of integrity, character and class. The team award is selected by other teams who compete in that sport. Points are awarded based on how each team finished in the voting and in June, the institution with the highest totals will receive the 'PBC Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award.'

As a Division II program, Bobcat Athletics prides itself on balancing the life of the student-athlete, evidenced by the teams' multiple appearances in post-season competition as well as documented academic success and community-service involvement.
