TOWSON, Md. - Catholic University had six student-athletes named to the 2018 Landmark Conference Fall All-Sportsmanship Team on Tuesday. Seniors Graceton Griffith (field hockey) and Mitch Ford (men's soccer), juniors Cosmo Pirozzi (men's cross country), junior Emily Snyder (women's cross country) and Isabelle Cooper (women's volleyball) and sophomore Krista Boretti (women's soccer) were all first time selections.
The Landmark Conference named 47 student-athletes to the All-Sportsmanship Team which includes one student-athlete from each institution for each sport that is selected by the players and coaches from their respective team. Of the 47 student-athletes, three were repeat honorees, and four 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.
