This would normally happen if the group was a Mail Enabled Security Group rather than a Distribution Group.

No there is no way to stop this, when an email is sent to a DL all memebers will receive it this is the way exchange works

the only "Alternative" is for the sender to expand the DL and remove his name.

I created a mail enabled security group to test, and the sender was still included. Any other thoughts?

Did you read my comment ? it has nothing to do with the type of the group it is by design and you can't do anything about it

It wasn't really a solution. I was hoping for an actual solution, not just to be told it can't be done.
