Schreiner gets 2007 SAAC Team Sportsmanship Award
The Schreiner University volleyball team is the winner of an American Southwest Conference Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Team Sportsmanship Award for fall sports. Schreiner shared the ASC West Division volleyball honor with Howard Payne University.

“Although I hadn’t known about the award, I am not surprised that we were considered for it,” volleyball coach John Greenlee said. “It is a reflection of the seriousness with which our players view their role as ambassadors for the school. It is worth noting that the award was voted on by the players’ peers; the Student Athlete Advisory Council members from across the conference decided this award. I think that it speaks to the high caliber of our student-athletes that they were noticed for their good sportsmanship. And this holds true for all of our student-athletes, not just the members of the volleyball team. I am proud of the members of my volleyball team for having met the challenge of those standards, and for having done so in a way that was recognizable to their peers and competitors.”

This is the first year of the award honoring member institutions in each ASC championship sport that best display positive qualities of sportsmanship and fair play from their student-athletes, coaches and fans throughout the season. The Student-Athlete Advisory Committees from the conference's 15 member institutions vote on the recipients. Other winners are LeTourneau University, McMurry University and Mississippi College.
