For the second year in a row, the Clinton Community College Athletic Department is the recipient of the 2011-2012 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region III Sportsmanship Award. The NJCAA Sportsmanship award is given to those colleges whose student-athletes and staff demonstrate superior sportsman-like conduct on and off the field.
“The Athletic Program has been honored with the NJCAA Sportsmanship Award every year since its inception in 2009,” said CCC Director of Athletics Todd Roenbeck. “We couldn’t be happier that Clinton was once again singled out for this great achievement.”
The CCC Athletic Department is being recognized for making the college sports experience a positive one before, during and after competition and for guaranteeing that all eligibility rules and regulations are followed.
“There is no higher honor in athletics than to be recognized for good sportsmanship.” Roenbeck said.
“This award says a great deal about our students, coaches and athletic staff,” said CCC President John Jablonksi. “It shows our campus community and the community outside the college walls, the integrity of our student-athletes and the athletic department as a whole.”
NJCAA Region III is made up of 26 colleges from New York State.
