On Monday, April 3rd, 2017, the Timber Creek Sports Medicine team and a handful of their finest sports medicine student athletic training aides traveled to Showalter Field at Winter Park High School to compete in the event..

The event has been an annual get together for the Orange County Athletic Trainers for the past 14 years. Students not only have a blast showing off their competitive side but they also get to socialize and network with students from the other Orange County schools. Some of the various races and events that the students compete in are carrying an injured athlete, wrapping an ice bag on, and participating in a crutch relay. Most of the participating schools provide classes where the students have the option to take basic courses such as First Aid and Safety and Care & Prevention of Athletic Injuries. The classes provide students hands-on training and experience in the sports medicine field where they learn life-saving skills and basic care of athletic injuries.

This year the TC Sports Medicine team represented the Wolves well with their purple “Shark Week” T-shirts along with their positive attitudes to compete in the event. The team was led by Head Athletic Trainer, Heather Klein, Assistant Athletic Trainers, Sam Mizener and Viviana Vargas, and UCF Student Athletic Training Intern, Alli Verdeja. The following student athletic training aides represented TC and competed in the event: Erbe Wold, Isabel Bareno, Ryan Mendez, Sydney Socarras, Lauren Torres, Amari Brown, Queen Hicks, Tyler Kvidera, Angel Rodgers, and Evan Gregory. The Wolves didn’t finish 1st this year but they did enjoy a fun filled day of food, fellowship and relay races. The TC Sports Medicine team would like to send a big shout out to the University Cougars for taking home the 1st place trophy this year.

In addition, the TC Sports Medicine staff would like to send out a special thanks to all the students athletic training aides who volunteered their time to the program during the 2016-2017 athletic season. We truly appreciate your help! 

Go Wolves!
