The University of Scranton placed six student-athletes on the Landmark Conference Spring All-Sportsmanship Team, according to a release from the conference office this morning.
The Royals chosen to the teams are senior Brian Healy (Middletown, N.J./Middletown South) of the baseball team, senior Kevin Murphy (Greenbelt, Md./Gonzaga College H.S.) of the men's tennis team, senior Keith Vita (Melville, N.Y./St. Anthony's) of the men's lacrosse team, senior Fiona Keelan (New Rochelle, N.Y./Mamaroneck) of the women's lacrosse team, freshman Kimberly Plaspohl (Smithtown, N.Y./Smithtown West) of the softball team, and freshman Emilia Jakubek (Honesdale, Pa./Scranton Prep) of the women's tennis 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 show respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents, officials, spectators and the campus community as a whole.
The All-Sportsmanship Team was created by the Landmark Student-Athlete Advisory Committee in 2013 as a way to highlight student-athletes who are making an impact.
