Messick Sportsmanship Awards

Each conference coach votes on the sportsmanship of opposing players, coaches, and the atmosphere of the institution as a whole – fans and staff, for instance. These votes are collected at the end of each playing season, and averaged to determine a winner for each sport. Those scores are then tallied to determine the overall Messick Award Winner.

Starting in the 2010-2011 school year, the individual teams with the best sportsmanship ranking have also been recognized. Also known as the Mini Messick, these awards are presented at the end of each playing season.
