Six from Goucher Make All-Sportsmanship Team

TOWSON, Md. — Six student-athletes from Goucher are among the 45 who are on the Fall 2013 All-Sportsmanship Team that the Landmark Conference issued this morning.

The All-Sportsmanship Team, which is replacing the Sportsmanship Cup the Landmark Conference began giving out in 2009-10, was created by the Landmark Student-Athlete Advisory Committee as a way to highlight student-athletes who epitomize the ideals of sportsmanship. The 45 who were selected demonstrate fair play, graciousness in victory and respectfulness in defeat, plus they are ambassadors for their respective teams and schools, both on and off the field, and galvanize their teammates toward their goals. They exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents, officials, spectators and the greater campus community.

The All-Sportsmanship Team includes one student-athlete from each member institution for each sport for which the Landmark Conference crowns a champion during that season. The student-athletes are chosen by the players and coaches from their respective team.

The six student-athletes from Goucher who are on the Fall 2013 All-Sportsmanship Team are:
