SU Athletes Score Big in the Classroom
Susquehanna student athletes continued to make their mark in the inaugural season of the Landmark Conference with an impressive showing in the awarding of spring season academic honors. Of the 363 student athletes named to the 2008 Spring Landmark Conference Academic Honor Roll, 77 were from Susquehanna.
Four more spring athletes were selected for the Spring Landmark All-Academic Team, which honors two male and two female athletes from each of the conference’s eight schools. Susquehanna selections were men’s track and field members Jeffrey “JJ” Brooks ’09, of Cogan Station, Pa., and Patrick Donegan ’09, of Lewisburg, Pa.; Ashley Moormann ’08, of Stanhope, N.J., from the women's track and field team; and Shelby Werronen ’09, of Concord, Ohio, from the women's tennis team.
Capping off the conference accolades, three Susquehanna seniors were named Landmark Spring Senior Scholar Athletes. Luke Burtnett ’08, of Mechanicsburg, Pa., earned the honors for men’s lacrosse, Danielle McCann ’08, of Berkeley Heights, N.J., for softball and Sarah Burkhardt ’08, of Hoffman Estates, Ill., for women’s outdoor track and field. Susquehanna finished the year with six Senior Scholar Athletes across the three seasons, the most of any Landmark school.
