ALPINE The Sul Ross State University softball and men's tennis teams were the spring recipients of the ASC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) Team Sportsmanship Awards in an announcement May 29.

Sul Ross tied for the most SAAC Sportsmanship wins in softball with five overall (2010, 11, 13, 16, 19). This was also the fifth time the tennis program has won (2009, 10, 15, 18, 19).

The spring 2019 awards are presented in baseball, men's golf, women's golf, softball, men's tennis, women's tennis, men's track & field and women's track & field with each of the 13 campus SAACs voting within the sports it sponsors.
