For the first time in the program’s history, the Concordia Thunder Cross-Country Running team will be sending a full complement of 12 athletes to the National Championships. At the ACAC Championships that were hosted by Lethbridge College on October 31st, both the Men’s and Women’s team took home silver medals which qualified them for the Nationals. Additionally, two Thunder athletes won individual silver medals in their respective races. Women’s XCR Captain Marriya Jenkins – who has re-written the record books for Concordia XCR women with 4 ACAC medals and 2 CCAA medals in her five years with the Thunder, collected another silver to add to her collection. Five year athlete (his last two with Concordia), Kirk Sundt also took home the silver and with his leadership on the field is looking to inspire his teammates on the National stage. Marriya and Kirk – along with teammate Kenton Sportak – were also selected to the ACAC All-Conference team. Having never taken more than 6 athletes to Nationals before, 2014-15 ACAC and CCAA Coach of the Year Matt Norminton now has all the arrows in his quiver heading to the CCAA National Championships which will be held on November 13th-14th at St. Lawrence College in Brockville, Ontario.
