TOWSON, Md. - The Landmark Conference has released the Athletes of the Week. The conference will recognize a student-athlete for each sport based on their contributions to their team throughout the season.

The Greyhounds are 7-2 on the season. Susquehanna University improved to 6-3 on the season with a pair of wins over the weekend. The River Hawks defeated Gwynedd Mercy 73-68 on Saturday and won 82-60 on Sunday against King’s (Pa.).
No. 6 University of Scranton stayed unbeaten on the year at 9-0, winning their 41st straight non-conference regular season game in the process. The Lady Royals hosted the 2018 Hilton Scranton Poinsettia Classic on Sunday and picked up three wins, including a 65-53 win over No. 22 Ithaca.
The Landmark Conference will take a break from releasing Athlete of the Week selections until after the New Year. We wish all our fans a safe and happy new year!
