The University of Scranton placed six student-athletes on the Landmark Conference Spring All-Sportsmanship Teams, according to a release from the conference office today.
The Royals chosen to the teams are senior Sean McNamara (Scarsdale, N.Y./Fordham Prep) of the baseball team, sophomore Jaclyn Mauro (East Northport, N.Y./Northport) of the softball team, senior Michael Pottieger (Wyomissing, Pa./Wyomissing) of the men's tennis team, sophomore Elyse Smilnak (Hollidaysburg, Pa./Hollidaysburg) of the women's tennis team, senior Mattias Jones (Exton, Pa./Malvern Prep) of the men's lacrosse team, and sophomore Gabby Lins (Ocean, N.J./Ocean Township) of the women's tennis team.
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.
