TOWSON, Md. – For the first time ever, the Landmark Conference has announced the 2013 Fall All-Sportsmanship teams with 45 student-athletes being represented from each fall sport.
The All-Sportsmanship Team includes one student-athlete from each institution for each sport and is selected by the players and coaches from their respective team and recognizes student-athletes who epitomize the ideals of sportsmanship.
The men’s cross country selection was senior Cory Edwards (Franklin, N.J. / Wallkill Valley) while on the women’s side, senior Lauren Hendricks (Bound Brook, N.J. / Bridgewater-Raritan) was the representative.
Senior back Nancy Heidt (Saunderstown, R.I. / North Kingstown) and sophomore midfielder Gannon Keller (Selinsgrove, Pa. / Selinsgrove Area) were the selections for field hockey and men’s soccer, respectively.
Senior back Oriana Long (Selinsgrove, Pa. / Selinsgrove Area) represented the women’s soccer squad and freshman setter Maggie O’Hearn (Mountville, Pa. / Hempfield) was the selection for volleyball.
These student-athletes demonstrated 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.
Of the 45 student-athletes on the All-Sportsmanship Team, 13 were named All-Landmark and many of the student athletes were described as leaders and difference-makers on their teams.
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.
