Award Description: The Bates College Senior Sportsmanship Award honors student-athletes who, through their actions in the competitive arena of intercollegiate athletics, have demonstrated one or more of the ideals of sportsmanship, including fairness, civility, honesty, unselfishness, respect and responsibility.
I could not be more proud than to have had 3 Bates College Sportsmanship Award winners in my first 4 years of coaching. It speaks volumes toward the type of leadership this team has been privy to. The correlation between our recent levels of success and our family like environment must be due in large part to our leaders whom have continually demonstrated the ideals of sportsmanship (fairness, civilty, honesty, unselfishness, respect, and responsibility). Emilie Swenson in '08, Sarah Reingold in '10, and now Charlotte Green in 2011. All three were captains of this team, and showed us what it truly means to be a Bobcat. All swam to lifetime bests and led this team with uncompromising values that effected all in the program.
Charlotte's success this year nearly won her the outstanding athlete award at Bates. But she was much more than just a stellar athlete. Her excellence in the intangible things like leadership, character, support, and respect made her a leader all could look up to. Congrats Charlotte!
