Sports Editor

There is more to athletics than just your skill on the field.  The way you play and treat your opponents is a huge part of college sports.  The ODAC has announced athletes from each fall sports team that shows good sportsmanship on and off the field.  Six Maroons were chosen for the honor, one from each fall sport at RC. 

                The list of RC athletes is as follows:

                                Drew Nichols ’11                              Men’s Cross Country

                                Katie Haugen ’11                              Women’s Cross Country

                                Megan Maier ’11                              Field Hockey

                                Avery Makel ’12                               Men’s Soccer

                                Jordan May ’13                                 Women’s Soccer

                                Emily Martin ’11                                Volleyball

This is only the second year the conference has announced the honor.  The ODAC, as well as Roanoke College, has expressed its appreciation for these athletes who uphold high standards for themselves as well as their teams and school.

” The conference prides itself on positive sportsmanship and encouraging student-athletes to lead by example,” said ODAC Commissioner Brad Bankston.   “Each one of the honorees has been selected by the coaches in recognition of their conduct in the arena. My hat is off to these student-athletes – thanking them for the example they set for all of us.”
