Towson, Md. — The Catholic University of America Cardinals were honored with eight selections to the Landmark Conference Spring All-Sportsmanship Team as announced by the league office on Friday.
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.
Catholic's honorees were made up of five seniors, including two-time winner Bennett Bradley (men's lacrosse), along with a junior and two freshmen.
Bradley was joined by his classmates Brennan Cotter (baseball), Rob Alexander (men's tennis), Jenna Gobel (women's lacrosse) and Brian Seward (men's outdoor track & field), junior Andrea Galeano (women's outdoor track & field) and rookies Allie Lajeunesse (softball) and Grace Connell (women's tennis).
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.
