Crystal Falls’ Lexi Gussert has been named Michigan State’s Big Ten Conference Sportsmanship Award recipient for a second straight year. Gussert, a senior and Spartan co-captain, has battled through injuries to play in 24 games this year. The Big Ten also recognized 13 other sportsmanship award recipients. “The students chosen are individuals who have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior,” said the Big Ten in a statement. “These students must also be in good academic standing and have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting.”
