For the second time in three years, the Truman Athletics Department captured the GLVC James R. Spalding Sportsmanship Award.
The award is based on individual sport coach rankings of their top three teams that displayed the best sportsmanship throughout the seasons. The Bulldog football team, softball team and men’s outdoor track and field team were respective team sportsmanship winners.
Truman joins Bellarmine (Ky.) as only the second league school to win the award multiple times in the 12 years of the conference-wide award.
In addition, Taurin Hughes (men’s basketball) and Savvy Hughes (volleyball) were the Bulldog individual sportsmanship winners out of the 18 Truman student-athletes nominated by their respective sport for the honor.
