The Landmark Conference Releases 2017 All-Sportsmanship Team

TOWSON, Md. – The Landmark released the Spring 2017 All-Sportsmanship teams, tabbing six Gophers for recognition.

The All-Sportsmanship Team recognizes student-athletes who epitomize the ideals of sportsmanship. The student-athletes selected demonstrate fair play, graciousness in victory and respectfulness in defeat. They are ambassadors for the team, both on and off the field, and galvanize their teammates toward their goals. These student-athletes exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents, officials, spectators, and the greater campus community.

The Landmark Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) created the All-Sportsmanship Team in 2013 as a way to highlight student-athletes who are making an impact. The Landmark previously awarded a Sportsmanship Cup before the All-Sportsmanship Team replaced the Cup for the 2013-14 academic year.
