Two Concordia student athletes were honored on Wednesday, March 27 during the 2013 Texas Relays Celebration at Austin’s City Hall for their academic and athletic achievements as well as community involvement.
Cedric Perry, a junior communication major was the first-ever Concordia student athlete to compete at the Texas Relays, placing 10th in the College Division of the 400-meter intermediate hurdles in 2012. Perry has broken school records for the 400-meter hurdles and is a member of the record-holding 4x400-meter relay team. He also serves as music director and assistant manager for the campus radio station, Tornado Radio, and coaches a variety of sports to area youth through the Chasco YMCA in Round Rock.
Jamarion Jenkins, a junior kinesiology major, is a record-holding member of the sprint medley and 4x200-meter relay teams for Concordia and recorded the fastest individual time for the team in the spring of 2013. Jenkins is a member of the Army ROTC and is involved with the ROTC-Valor Program, a Christian organization whose mission is to promote Christianity and faith among military leaders.
The University sent five individual athletes to the 2013 Texas Relays this week along with a relay team.
Since spring 2011, Concordia has realized five American Southwest Conference (ASC) championship titles in baseball (2011 and 2012), women's basketball (2012), men's basketball (2013) and cross country (2011).
