Young Harris College was presented with the 2021-22 Peach Belt Conference Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award at the league's annual awards dinner Tuesday (May 31). A banner that rotates from winning school to winning school will travel to Young Harris, Georgia, for the first time.


The annual honor is given to the institution displaying the best overall sportsmanship for the 2021-22 season and culminates the PBC's season-long sportsmanship recognition program.

Following each championship sports season a Team Sportsmanship Award was presented to the team in that sport that best exemplifies what the award stands for: the spirit of

sportsmanship, a high degree of integrity, character and class. Each team award is voted on by other teams who compete in that sport and points are awarded on how each team finished in the voting.


Young Harris won Team Sportsmanship Awards in men's basketball, men's golf, volleyball and men's lacrosse during the 2021-22 season. The four awards were the most for any PBC institution and are the most for YHC in a single season since the PBC began presenting the award in 2009.
