Landmark Recognizes Pair of Goucher Student-Athletes

TOWSON, Md. — A junior who was the top female cross country runner from a Division III school at the Baltimore Metro Meet and a sophomore men's soccer goalkeeper who didn't surrender a goal in either of his first two starts of the season were the two student-athletes from Goucher who were selected Players of the Week in the Landmark Conference for the seven-day period which ended September 1.

The conference announced its first weekly set of top players this afternoon and the list of 10 honorees included Katherine Currier for the sport of women's cross country and Ethan DeBandi for men's soccer.

Currier placed third overall and first among Division III competitors at Saturday's Baltimore Metro Meet. She completed the 5,000-meter race conducted on Goucher's campus in 19:52.94.

The only two runners who crossed the finish line ahead of Currier were Elizabeth Tauber from Towson (19:15.93) and Ashley Seymour from Morgan St. (19:34.75).

DeBandi became the first goalkeeper on Goucher's men's soccer team to earn shutouts in the first two games of a season since Justin Holbrook in 2009 by making a pair of saves in a 2-0 triumph over Hood and five more in a 4-0 victory over Shenandoah.

The Gophers outshot the Blazers and Hornets by a combined margin of 36-15.
