Six University of Scranton student-athletes have been named to the Landmark Conference Winter All-Sportsmanship Team according to an announcement made by the conference office on Friday morning.
The six student-athletes honored are junior Kyle DeVerna (Rockville Centre, N.Y. / Kellenberg Memorial) of men's basketball, senior Julia Gantz (Havertown, Pa. / Archbishop Carroll) of women's basketball, sophomore John Fimmano (Southbury, Conn. / Pomperaug) of men's swimming & diving, senior Lucy Fulton (Wayne, Pa. / Radnor) of women's swimming & diving, senior Mark Merli (Peckville, Pa. / Valley View) of men's track & field, and freshman Nikki George (Denville, N.J. / Morris Knolls) of women's track & 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. The Landmark previously awarded a Sportsmanship Cup before the All-Sportsmanship Team replaced the Cup for the 2013-14 academic year.
