Six From Goucher Land On All-Sportsmanship Team

TOWSON, Md. —  Six student-athletes from Goucher were among the 47 named today to the Landmark Conference's Winter 2016 All-Sportsmanship 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.

"Being selected to this team means the student-athlete displays a high level of ethical conduct, gives great effort in practice and competition, and serves as a positive representative of our college," said Patrick Daniel, Goucher's head women's basketball coach. "This is great recognition for our student-athlete's who were selected to this team."

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. It includes one student-athlete from each institution for each sport and the honorees are selected by the players and coaches from their respective team.
