Lady Flames Receive Big South Women's Cross Country Team Sportsmanship Award For Second-Consecutive Season
Coach Brant Tolsma's Lady Flames, which won the 2006 New Balance Big South Women's Cross Country Championship in November – its first since 2000 -- received three first-place votes and 16 points, ahead of second-place Coastal Carolina, which received two first-place votes and 10 points. VMI was third in the voting with two first-place votes and nine points, while Charleston Southern and Radford each received a first-place nod.
The team awards are voted on by Big South student-athletes and are awarded at the end of each competitive season. Teams cannot vote for themselves.
"The Big South Conference places great emphasis on the values of sportsmanship and fair play," said Kallander. "The creation of these awards appropriately recognizes those student-athletes and coaches within the conference that are leaders in exemplifying these values."
