Towson, Md. — The Catholic University of America was honored with six selections to the 2017 Landmark Conference Fall All-Sportsmanship Team. Seniors Becky Chominski (women's cross country), Sophia Hamilton (field hockey), Riley Hawbliztel (women's soccer) Partick Jones (men's cross country), Heston Priestley (men's soccer) and Tara Rempel (volleyball) all made the 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.
Of the 47 student-athletes, 10 were repeat honorees, and 11 were named to the Landmark All-Conference teams in their respective sports.
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.
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.
