Landon Bartel of the Husker track and field team was honored as one of Nebraska’s Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners by the Big Ten on Thursday, as the conference announced its 28 honorees. Standouts were chosen from a group of more than 350 students honored throughout the academic year who had displayed positive sportsmanship.
