A group of 10 spring sports student-athletes from Susquehanna University were recently honored by the Landmark Conference as recipients of the 2018 Sportsmanship Award for their particular sport. The announcement was made on the Landmark Conference website Monday.
Representing Susquehanna for the spring were Jimmy Loftus (baseball), Rob Johnson (men's golf), Samantha Thompson (women's golf), Connor Ward (men's lacrosse), Caroline Corrigan (women's lacrosse), McKayla Brady (softball), Ashton Collins (men's tennis), Julia Spear (women's tennis), Joshua Brown (men's track and field) and Kailyn Reilly (women's track and field).
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.
