The Peach Belt Conference has announced that Young Harris College has won the 2021-22 Men's Lacrosse Team Sportsmanship Award.


The program presents an award following each championship season to the team in that sport that best exemplifies the spirit of sportsmanship and generally conducts themselves with a high degree of integrity, character and class. The team award is selected by other teams who compete in that sport. Points are awarded based on how each team finished in the voting and in June, the institution with the highest totals will receive the PBC Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award.


YHC earned the men's lacrosse award for the first time in program history. YHC also won the Volleyball, Men's Basketball and Men's Golf Team Sportsmanship Awards earlier this season. The award is the 10th overall for the Mountain Lion athletics program.


The PBC began the Team Sportsmanship Award program in the 2008-09 season.
