FREELAND, Mich.--Adrian College senior Emily Bristow (Hanover, Mich./Hanover-Horton High School) earned the league's sportsmanship award that was presented at the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Women's Golf Fall Championships over the weekend.
The MIAA Sportsmanship Award criteria states the winner is a junior or senior in the conference who demonstrates outstanding ethical conduct and golf sportsmanship. Each coach in the conference can nominate one player, followed by a vote of the players and coaches to determine the honoree.
"Emily has been a dedicated member of the golf team for four years and is an excellent example of what it is to be a student-athlete on the golf course and in the classroom," four-year Adrian coach Ryan Williams said. "Her being voted for the sportsmanship award by her peers from around the league is a great tribute to how she carries herself, how she treats others, and the way she plays the game. I am extremely proud of the year and career that Emily has had in MIAA golf."
Bristow claimed two team medalist victories, including the first MIAA Jamboree event of the fall semester hosted by Albion College on Monday, Sep. 19. She carded an Adrian season-low 77 which was tied for fourth out of 55 individuals, and set a Bulldog record in their MIAA Jamboree history.
A chemistry major, Bristow was named to the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-America Scholar Team and All-MIAA Honor Roll as a junior.
