- Georgia College earned the PBC Institution of the Year Sportsmanship Award for the first time in school history.
- The annual honor is given to the institution displaying the best overall sportsmanship for the 2016-17 season and culminates the PBC’s season-long sportsmanship recognition program.
- Following each championship sports season a Team Sportsmanship Award is 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.
- In 2016-17, Georgia College was a co-winner of the Team Sportsmanship Award in women’s tennis and won outright in men’s tennis and volleyball. GC has won 12 Team Sportsmanship Awards all-time.
