(Seguin) – Texas Lutheran's NCAA Division III national runner-up baseball team and NCAA DIII regional finalist softball squad each won Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Spring 2018 Team Sportsmanship Awards, the league office announced Thursday.

The SCAC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee instituted the award prior to the 2016-17 academic year in an effort to honor the team that best portrays good sportsmanship and fair play from the players and coaches during the season.
 
The spring awards are presented in baseball, men's and women's golf, softball, men's and women's tennis, and men's and women's track and field.
 
The awards were voted on by each member institution's SAAC, with each individual group ranking the top three teams in each sport. The first place selections were awarded five points, second place earned three points and third place earned one point. Points were then totaled to select the conference's overall winner.
 
Southwestern University collected three of the awards. TLU won two.
 
Austin College, Colorado College and Schreiner University took the remaining three.
 
TLU Baseball and Southwestern Women's Golf earned back-to-back awards.
 
TLU Baseball, champions of the NCAA DIII Spokane, Wash. Regional and the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, posted the national runner-up finish Tuesday in Appleton, Wis.

TLU, 42-12 and the winner of the NCAA DIII Baseball Championship's Pool B, posted a 4-3 record in the World Series. TLU went 3-1 in elimination games at Fox Cities Stadium.
 
The Bulldogs' season win total of 42 is the third-most in school history - trailing only the 45 wins from the 1996 team and the 43 wins in 1999.

TLU's second-place finish is the best NCAA Division III final standing in a team sport in school history. TLU Men's Golf claimed a third-place NCAA DIII finish in 2011.

The Bulldogs produced an 11-3 post-season record in 2018 (counting tournament runs in the SCAC, the Spokane, Wash. Regional, and the World Series).
 
TLU Softball, coached by seventh-year head coach Wade Wilson, spent the majority of 2018 as the No. 2-ranked team in all of NCAA Division III.
 
The Bulldogs ended the year with an overall record of 39-3 after falling in the final game of the NCAA DIII Softball Seguin, Texas Regional. The Bulldogs set the new school mark for single-season winning percentage at .929.
 
TLU scored 297 runs (third all-time for a single season) and produced 256 RBI (third all-time), 76 doubles (second all-time), 24 home runs (third all-time), a team slugging percentage of .499 (third all-time), and an on-base percentage of .428 (third all-time).

The Bulldogs have a current SCAC regular-season win streak of 49 games, which is tied for the school and conference record.
