Greensboro, N.C. - The Virginia men's lacrosse program has been named the recipient of Atlantic Coast Conference's Spring Sportsmanship Award for men's lacrosse this season. This is the fourth consecutive season Dom Starsia's program has been honored with the award.
Teams receiving the award have conducted themselves with a high degree of character and good sportsmanship, as determined by a vote of the league's players and coaches.
"We are very proud to have been selected for the Atlantic Coast Conference's Sportsmanship Award for the fourth year in a row," said Starsia. "The qualities that define this award are not taken for granted within the Virginia lacrosse program. We talk about becoming selfless, thoughtful and responsible adults and try to conduct ourselves, on and off the field, in a manner respectful of the University's highest ideals. It is always a work in progress and we appreciate the recognition for the effort."
The Cavaliers were ranked third in the final USILA coaches poll with a 12-4 record this season.
