WINTERVILLE—The NJCAA’s Region 10 Conference announced this month that Pitt Community College Athletics had received its “Sportsmanship Award” for the 2019-20 academic year.

The conference, which is comprised of teams from North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, stated that Pitt student-athletes and coaches had shown “outstanding respect for both opposing teams and officials” and that PCC Athletics was among Region 10 programs to earn “ejection-free status” during the past year.

“I am very proud of our student-athletes and coaches,” PCC Director of Athletics Dawn Manning said. “At the end of the day, academics and sportsmanship top the list of goals for each one of our four intercollegiate athletics teams. Obviously, winning is nice, too, so we strive to accomplish all three.”

PCC fields teams in baseball, court volleyball, men’s basketball and softball. All four are currently scheduled to resume competition in the 2021 Spring Semester, after a lengthy pause due to the coronavirus pandemic.
