Dallas, Tx - Dallas Christian College held the annual Honors Chapel this past Thursday where several of our current athletes were highlighted and honored with various awards from on and off the court. Our Crusader of Excellence Award was received by Adriel Davila and JT Berry (Baseball), Deontrey Fuller (Men's Basketball), Trish Daily (Women's Basketball), Rudy Olenga (Soccer) and Cecilia De La Rosa (Volleyball). This Award is given to student-athletes who go above and beyond, both on and off of the court or field and in the classroom and shows what it means to strive for excellence.
Our Faith of Action Award winners are Gabriel Benza (Baseball) Max Walter (Men's Basketball) Daizja Jolly (Women's Basketball) Fernando Vaquera (Soccer) and Summer Doty (Volleyball). This award truly exemplifies what it means to live out their faith and exemplify Christ within their prospective sport.
Finally, our Student-Athletes of the Year are Cameron Henderson (Baseball) and Trish Daily (Women's Basketball). To earn this award, the student athlete must be nominated by his or her coach, be in good academic standing, and have been a key part of the success experienced by his or her team.
"We take great pride in seeing our athletes excel, not just in their respective sport but in the classroom, their faith, and their life moving forward," commented SID and Assistant Basketabll Coach Dominique Reagor.
