AU’s Anthony DiCarlo Honored in St. Louis

Former Anderson wrestler Anthony DiCarlo, winner of the 2009 NCAA National Sportsmanship Award, was honored recently at the AT&T National Sportsmanship Awards in St. Louis at the Khorassan Ballroom of the Chase Park Plaza. CBS College Sports will broadcast the event in a 60-minute special on Wednesday, December 16th, at 8pm (with three repeat telecasts listed below). The one-hour program will feature the most compelling honoree stories and highlights from the 2009 AT&T National Sportsmanship Awards.  


Nominees for the NCAA’s Sportsmanship Award exemplify the good sportsmanship that characterizes the highest level of respect, caring, fairness, civility, honesty, integrity and responsibility during competition. DiCarlo represents the finest ideals of sportsmanship, and these qualities were never more fully displayed than in a match against an opponent from Central Missouri State University last season.


The National Sportsmanship Awards, hosted by the St. Louis Sports Commission and the Citizenship Through Sports Alliance, celebrates all that is right in sports by highlighting the most remarkable examples of sportsmanship. Taking place in St. Louis for the fifth straight year, the AT&T National Sportsmanship Awards recognizes the most remarkable examples of sportsmanship.  The event celebrated all that’s right in sports – honoring athletes and personalities from around the nation for their integrity, class, selflessness, perseverance, kindness and community service, and has become one of the most meaningful and inspiring nights in sports. Eighteen honorees were recognized at this year’s AT&T National Sportsmanship Awards. 


In addition to the premiere telecast on Dec. 16, CBS College Sports Network will re-air the AT&T National Sportsmanship Awards broadcast at four other times during December.  This is the first time the event will air nationally.
