Athletic Awards

At Landmark College, we are proud to honor the student athletes who have excelled on and off the field or court.

Congrats to all of our athletes and coaches for a fantastic 2019 – 2020 sports season. Despite having to end our spring sports season quickly and move our awards ceremony online, our tremendous group of student-athletes, coaches, and fans made the year one to remember.
