The University of Scranton placed four student-athletes on the Landmark Conference Winter All-Sportsmanship Teams, according to a release from the conference office this week.
The Royals chosen to the teams are junior Drew Schankweiler (Mechanicsburg, Pa./Mechanicsburg) of men's basketball, senior Denise Rizzo (Paramus, N.J./Holy Angels) of women's basketball, sophomore Daniel Muenkel (Hopewell Junction, N.Y./Arlington Senior) of men's swimming & diving, and sophomore Lucy Fulton (Wayne, Pa./Radnor) of women's swimming & diving.
The All-Sportsmanship Team recognizes student-athletes who epitomize the ideals of sportsmanship. They 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.
