BALTIMORE, Md. – All of the spring sports seniors for a total of 22 student-athletes have been named to the Landmark Conference All-Sportsmanship team.
The unprecedented cancellation of spring sports due to the COVID-19 pandemic was especially painful for the senior class of 2020. The Landmark is honoring this class of student-athletes as the conference Spring All-Sportsmanship Team, to celebrate them for their years of contributions to their respective programs at each of the conference's eight member schools.
Nick Patterson (East Lansing, Mich./Delmonte Ranch), Andrew Sade (Wellsville, Pa./Northern), Alex Shields (Sparks, Md./Calvert Hall) and Matt Woodson (Timonium, Md./McDonough) were named to the All-Sportsmanship Team from the Gophers men's lacrosse team.
Alyssa Long (Pennsburg, Pa./Upper Perkiomen), Katarina Molchen (Morgantown, Pa./Twin Valley), Shannon Stull (Westminster, Md./Francis Scott Key) and Gabrielle Umstead (Thornton, Pa./Garnet Valley) were named to the All-Sportsmanship Team from the Gophers women's lacrosse team.

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 All-Sportsmanship Team was created by the Landmark Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) 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.
