recognized for sportsmanship. The Landmark Student-Athlete Advisory
Committee (SAAC) created a Sportsmanship Cup in the fall of 2009

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 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.
This winter, six different institutions were selected as the best representations of sporstmanship amongst the six sports.

Goucher College men's and women's swimming teams were recognized as the leaders in sportsmanship, while the Moravian women's basketball team was voted the best in their sport. In men's indoor track and field, the United States Merchant Marine Academy was picked as the most sportsmanlike.
