TOWSON, Md. – The Moravian College women's soccer team earned the Landmark Conference Women's Soccer Sportsmanship Award. The NCAA and the Landmark Conference have placed a special emphasis on sportsmanship with the hope of encouraging positive interaction not only amongst teams competing, but the fans in attendance as well.
Following the completion of the fall sports season six teams have been recognized for sportsmanship. The Landmark Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) created a Sportsmanship Cup in the fall of 2009 and by the end of the year, one institution will be awarded the coveted trophy.
The Landmark SAAC Sportsmanship Cup is designed to recognize the Landmark institution that demonstrates the best overall sportsmanship over the course of the year. The Cup is awarded based on a formula that compiles the votes of each Landmark coach in consultation with their team captains ranking the top-3 sportsmanship programs in their respective sports. The formula also takes into account the number of sports an institution sponsors.
The Greyhounds (10-9-2, 4-2 Landmark) just wrapped up their 2012 season after falling to Lebanon Valley College in the ECAC Division III South Quarterfinals.
