TOWSON, Md. – Catholic University's Marc Hanna has been named the Baseball Senior Scholar Athlete. Hanna was a four-year starter and a two-time team captain for the Cardinals. He earned First Team All-Conference honors twice, and in 2012 Hanna was named Third Team All-Region. He wrapped up his career hitting .285 with 106 RBI in 163 games. Hanna earned the top senior athletic award at Catholic this spring when he was named the 2014 Harris Cup winner. He was also recognized as a member of the Landmark All-Sportsmanship Team last month.
The Landmark Conference selects 20 senior scholar athletes each year to recognize the top student-athlete in each sport based on academics and athletics.
The honorees must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.20 and are selected by a committee of Landmark Conference officers, athletics directors, and sports information directors. Chosen at the end of each sport season, the final eight honorees will be announced over the next two weeks.
Academically, Hanna boasts a 3.50 cumulative grade point average while majoring in psychology. Originally from Bloomfield, N.J., Hanna is a three-time Landmark Honor Roll selection and earned Dean's List honors multiple times. He was a member of the Catholic honor's program and was inducted into the Psi Chi National Honor Society for psychology.
Hanna also found time to serve as a member of Catholic's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee throughout his career while adding vice president responsibilities this year. He volunteered for a number of causes including D.C. Reads, Special Olympics, Cleanup Day, and the Martin Luther King Day of Service. Hanna was the co-chairman for this spring's Brookland Field Day and also served as a counselor for Bloomfield Parks and Recreation and a private tutor for special needs students in Silver Spring, Md.
