SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -  Gonzaga University took home the inaugural West Coast Conference's Institutional Sportsmanship award and redshirt senior Cameron Edman of the Bulldog baseball team received the Male Individual Sportsmanship award at the conference's Honors Dinner held at the Westin St. Francis in San Francisco, Calif., Friday evening.

The Bulldog men's and women's basketball, men's soccer and women's golf teams also received Sportsmanship award for their respective sports.

San Francisco cross country junior Hillary Kigar was recognized for her superior sportsmanship as the Female Individual winner.

All sportsmanship award winners were voted on by the WCC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). Candidates must have demonstrated the values of respect, honesty and integrity through a specific action directed toward an opponent and also in his/her daily participation in intercollegiate athletics during the 2010-11 academic year.

Recognizing good sportsmanship around the WCC was part of the conference-wide "Represent" campaign, which was launched in the fall of the 2010-11 school year and included each WCC institution committing to hosting "Represent" events in which student-athletes would wear their official "Represent" T-shirts and wristbands in an effort to promote good sportsmanship and challenge WCC student-athletes, coaches, administrators, and fans to proudly represent the West Coast Conference, their school, their team, and their selves.
