Farmingdale State Men?s Basketball Receives Sportsmanship Award
Mar 9, 2005

The Skyline Conference awards were announced on March 1st, 2005 and Farmingdale State Men's Basketball claimed both the Player and Coach of the Year awards, and most importantly: the Sportsmanship Award. In just the second year in the conference, the Rams finished with a perfect 14-0 conference record during the regular season, attaining the top seed in the conference tournament and going all the way to the Skyline Finals. Unfortunately, the Rams were upset by #2 seed Mount Saint Mary and were deprived of the chance to dance in the NCAA Tournament. Since it is not very common to see an undefeated conference team win the sportsmanship award, the school is very proud to see our team be given this award. According to athletic director Mike Harrington, "The sportsmanship award is one of the most prestigious awards we could receive. It is voted on by opposing coaches and shows that we are respected by our opponents."

After such a great season in only the second year in the Skyline, one can only imagine what the future will bring for Farmingdale State...
