Six Gophers Land on Spring All-Sportsmanship Team

TOWSON, Md. — Six Goucher student-athletes were among the 61 named by the Landmark Conference to the 2015 Spring All-Sportsmanship Teams this morning.

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 created the All-Sportsmanship Team in 2013 as a way to highlight players who are making an impact. The team includes one student-athlete from each institution for each sport and is selected by the players and coaches from their respective program. The full list of Goucher honorees is listed below.
