The All-Sportsmanship Team recognizes student-athletes from each varsity sport who have demonstrated outstanding dedication to sportsmanship. These student-athletes exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents, and spectators. They display sportsmanship not only as a participant in their sport but also as a spectator and in their everyday lives. Through their positive actions and examples, these student-athletes inspire others to adhere to the quality of sportsmanship that the NESCAC and the NCAA endorse.
A total of 16 individuals on the All-Sportsmanship Team also earned All-Conference accolades this spring, with three representatives from women's track and field and four from women's tennis. Six student-athletes received All-Sportsmanship recognition for the second straight year, including McCarthy of Trinity softball.

Members of the 2013 Spring All-Sportsmanship team who were named to All-NESCAC Second Team include Hillary Hoyt of Trinity women's tennis.
The Spring All-Sportsmanship Team was created by the NESCAC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). The NESCAC SAAC serves as the liaison between the student-athletes of NESCAC member institutions and conference administrators. The committee provides a voice to represent the concerns of all student-athletes and to discuss issues impacting student-athlete well-being. The NESCAC SAAC represents all students who participate in intercollegiate athletics and promotes and celebrates student-athletes achievements.
