Towson, Md. - The Catholic University of America was honored with six selections to the Landmark Conference Winter All-Sportsmanship Teams, as announced by the league office on Friday morning.
Seniors Billy Barnes (men's basketball), Erin McNulty (women's indoor track & field) and Dustin Vanella (men's indoor track & field), junior Emily O'Connor (women's basketball), sophomore Kevin Jay (men's swimming & diving) and freshman Molly Donnellan (women's swimming & diving) were all honored by the conference.
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.
Of the 47 honorees recognized by the Landmark, just three, including Barnes, were repeat winners.
