Not really.

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced June 19 the recipients of the 2008 Spring Sportsmanship Awards. Teams receiving the awards have conducted themselves with a high degree of character and good sportsmanship, as determined by a vote of the league’s players and coaches. Oddly, Wake Forest failed to muster a good sport…

Virginia Tech was named the recipient of the ACC Sportsmanship School of the Year Award for the 2007-08 academic year. A traveling trophy will be on display for one year at Virginia Tech, which was named the sportsmanship winner in five sports and leads all schools with 19 awards since joining the ACC in 2004.

Seven schools - Boston College, Clemson, Duke, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Virginia and Virginia Tech - were recognized by their peers as the sportsmanship award winners for the league’s 11 sponsored spring sports. The award is the fourth straight for the Virginia Tech women’s lacrosse team (translation: they’re not very good). The Clemson rowing team is a repeat winner from 2007 (translation: boat sank).

The following is a complete list of the 2008 Spring Sportsmanship Award recipients:
