Southeast women's soccer team earns OVC sportsmanship honor

Thursday, November 29, 2012

The Southeast Missouri State women's soccer program was recognized Wednesday as the recipient of the Ohio Valley Conference's Team Sportsmanship Award.

Southeast was 7-10-4 overall and fourth in the OVC at 5-3-2, then advanced to the semifinals of the OVC tourney. The Redhawks were hit with the in-season death of senior Meg Herndon after a motor vehicle accident.

"Our team is truly honored to receive the sportsmanship award," Southeast coach Heather Nelson said in a release. "Being recognized by fellow student-athletes within the conference speaks volumes about our team as a whole and is a testament to the integrity and strength of character that each individual within our program has demonstrated in this most challenging of seasons."
