Exercise science students participate in statewide student bowl and conference
Texas Wesleyan students Zachary De la Cruz, Lauren McQuatters, Heather Manos, Alexis Owens, Dana Lohrke, Katelynn Teufel, Brianna Sitton and Andrea Molina competed against 30 teams from colleges and universities across Texas at the Texas American College of Sports Medicine Conference’s Student Bowl competition, held this year on Feb. 28 and March 1 at Tarrant County College-Trinity River Campus.
Students answered questions in a Jeopardy-style format covering various topics in exercise science such as biomechanics, cardiovascular physiology, nutrition, neuromuscular physiology and strength and conditioning, among others.
“This was a great experience for our students and they learned a lot,” Carlos Martinez, dean of the School of Education, said. “Not only did they compete, but also they had the opportunity to listen to lectures from some of the top researchers in the field of exercise science. Overall, the students represented Texas Wesleyan University well and had a great time doing it.”
