WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Kristen Arthurs, an outside hitter on the volleyball team, and Jacob Palmer, a middle distance runner on the track team, were among 22 student-athletes honored by the Big Ten Conference as Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners, Thursday.

These individuals were chosen from a group of 276 student-athletes honored throughout the academic year who had displayed positive sportsmanship.

One member of each varsity sports team on every campus was chosen by his or her institution as a Sportsmanship Award honoree. From each university's list, two Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners were then selected. All of the Sportsmanship Award honorees have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. In addition, these student-athletes must be in good academic standing and must have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting.

The 22 Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners include 17 Academic All-Big Ten honorees and 10 All-Big Ten selections from the 2009-10 season.
