Burton Named to Landmark All-Sportsmanship Team

WASHINGTON - The Landmark Conference has selected 55 student-athletes to be named to the All-Sportsmanship 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.

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.

Of the 55 student-athletes on the All-Sportsmanship Team, 19 were named All-Landmark and 29 are part of the Landmark Honor Roll. Many of the student-athletes are leaders and influential members of their teams, campuses and communities.

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.

Junior defender Katie Burton was named to the Landmark All-Sportsmanship Team as announced on Wednesday. Burton played in eight games for the Cardinals and had four caused turnovers as well as four ground balls.

"Katie is a member of our leadership team and one of the most positive & supportive members of the team. She is one of our defensive subs and has seen significant time in over half of our games and is a definite leader overall. She works tremendously hard, always has a smile on her face, and always works hard. She also participates in a variety of community service activities and is a wonderful example of a student-athlete" said CUA head coach Meghan McDonogh.
