WASHINGTON - The Landmark Conference has selected 55 student-athletes to be named to the All-Sportsmanship Team. The All-Sportsmanship Team includes one student-athlete from each institution for each sport and is selected by the players and coaches from their respective team.
The All-Sportsmanship Team recognizes student-athletes who epitomize the ideals of sportsmanship. The student-athletes selected 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 exhibit respect for themselves, teammates, coaches, opponents, officials, spectators, and the greater campus community.
Of the 55 student-athletes on the All-Sportsmanship Team, 19 were named All-Landmark and 29 are part of the Landmark Honor Roll. Many of the student-athletes are leaders and influential members of their teams, campuses and communities.
The All-Sportsmanship Team was created by the Landmark Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) in 2013 as a way to highlight student-athletes who are making an impact. The Landmark previously awarded a Sportsmanship Cup before the All-Sportsmanship Team replaced the Cup for the 2013-14 academic year.
"Marc Hanna is the driving force of CUA Baseball. He does so, not only, because he is extremely talented, but because of his ability to motivate others and challenge his teammates to be the best they can be, both on and off the field. He is a two-year Captain, and has been named to the All Landmark Team twice. He has also been selected to the All Landmark Honor Roll each year. Marc carries a 3.5 GPA and is a member of the Student Athletes Advisory Committee. This past fall, Marc was the private tutor and social skills guide for a 12 year old autistic boy. He was an active part of his schoolwork and therapy. He did this every day from August-December. Marc is a truly inspiring young man" said CUA head coach Ross Natoli.
