MOORHEAD, Minn. (10/04/16)—Concordia will induct four former student/athletes into the Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday, Oct. 8 as part of the annual Homecoming Week celebration.
Jason Trichler ’93 from men’s cross country and track and field, women’s basketball player Erica (Hanson) Reid ’94, men’s hockey standout Marc Terris ’94 and Todd Hashbarger ’98 of men’s soccer and men’s hockey all excelled in the last decade of the century and all left their mark on their programs.
The four former student/athletes will receive their honor at the annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Saturday at 5 p.m. in the Centrum of the Knutson Campus Center on Concordia’s campus.
The four former outstanding athletes represent the first class in Hall of Fame history that graduated exclusively in the 1990’s – making it the youngest class in the Hall’s history.
Trichler earned an unprecedented three consecutive trips to the NCAA National Meet in cross country. Trichler is one of only two athletes to ever win the MIAC Championship Meet in cross country. He also earned All-Region honors on two occasions and was a three-time All-MIAC award winner. Trichler also excelled in track and field. He won the steeplechase crown at the MIAC Outdoor Meet in his senior year and was also second in the 5,000 meters.
Reid led her Lady Cobber basketball teams to four consecutive postseason NCAA national tournament appearances. She earned All-MIAC honors three times, was selected to the All-West Region team, and was an All-American Honorable Mention honoree. She completed her career as the Lady Cobbers’ sixth leading scorer with 1,240 points, and is sixth in rebounds with 686. Her teams compiled a four year MIAC record of 64 wins and only 16 losses.
Terris was an All-American in 1993 and a two-time All-MIAC honoree. Terris led the team in scoring in his junior with an impressive 21 goals and 25 assists for 46 points. He then backed that up with a 13-goal, 15-assists season in his senior year in 1994. Terris finished his Concordia career with 51 goals and 56 assists for 107 points and is the last Cobber player to reach the 100-point mark for a career.
Hashbarger was a three-time All-MIAC midfielder who twice earned All Region honors and was voted MIAC Most Valuable player his senior season in 1997 after leading the conference in points and assists. During his career he totaled 99 points including a Cobber record 47 assists. On the ice Hashbarger recorded 14 assists in each of his junior and senior seasons and had 38 points in his final two years.
