RICHARDSON -- The UT Tyler men's soccer team and men's cross country team were each named American Southwest Conference-Student Athlete Advisory Committee Team Sportsmanship Award for the Fall of 2013.  This marks the sixth and seventh time a Patriots team has won the award.

The award, started during the 2007-08 academic year, honors the member institution in each ASC championship sport that best displays positive qualities of sportsmanship and fair play from its student-athletes, coaches and fans throughout the season.

The Student-Athlete Advisory Committees from the conference’s 12-member institutions vote on the recipients.

This is the third time the men's cross country team has won the award (2010, 2012, 2013) and the first in program history for the men's soccer team.
