Miami Wins the Inaugural MAC Institutional Sportsmanship Award
Cleveland, Ohio -- Miami University was the recipient of the inaugural MAC Institutional Sportsmanship Award presented Thursday, May 19 at the MAC Honor's Dinner, as part of the conference's annual Spring Meetings at the Cleveland Renaissance Hotel.
The Institutional Sportsmanship Award evolved from the conference's recent strategic plan as the value of sportsmanship was the center of the conference mission statement and core values. In the voting process, every MAC institution received votes, which further supports that sportsmanship is emphasized and expected from our student-athletes, coaches and administrators across each and every MAC campus.
"The Institutional Sportsmanship Award is a positive reinforcement of one of the values that we as a conference and each of our member institutions all possess as a core value of who we are and how we conduct ourselves in athletic competition," said MAC Commissioner Dr. Jon A. Steinbrecher.
