2009 Women's Track: MacRae Honored for Sportsmanship
SUWANEE, Ga. – The Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) this week announced its inaugural women’s Track and Field sportsmanship team, according to Russell Kramer of the SCAC. Ten women’s track and field athletes were selected to the 2009 squad. Sewanee junior Chessie Macrae (Jacksonville, Fla., Boiles School) was among those honored. “Chessie is a very solid runner, student, teammate and citizen,” added Sewanee coach Jeff Heitzenrater. “She is constantly putting the welfare of her team before herself. I look forward to having her leadership and model work ethic next year in her senior seasons.”

The SCAC is placing a special emphasis on sportsmanship this year – asking all fans of the conference to exhibit good sportsmanship at all conference functions throughout the 2008-2009 season. Each coach was asked to elect one member from their team who displayed good sportsmanship throughout the season.
