We have had a lot of great moments since Goucher joined the Landmark Conference in 2007. While the college athletics world is still on pause due to COVID-19, we will look back at events from our teams from the past since we joined the conference. Each week we will focus on the days that occur from Monday to Sunday for the 2020 calendar year with events from our winter sports every Thursday. We finish up some cross country great moments this week and also look at events from men's and women's basketball and men's and women's swimming.
We continue our spring sports for All-Decade votes and this week we are voting on the Men's Lacrosse All-Decade Team. One more day to vote for the Men's Lacrosse All-Decade Team. Click HERE to vote!
