The MOATA, a member of The National Athletic Trainers’ Association, hosted the annual conference, bringing together educators and student leaders to discuss the latest developments in the field of athletic training.

“We are very proud of Jessica, Braden, and Morgan’s accomplishments. Our students’ success is both a reflection of their hard-earned knowledge and the College’s commitment to academic excellence. This win is not just an accolade; it is a testament to our phenomenal students, the program quality, and the opportunities that a C-SC education can provide,” stated Department Chair of Athletic Training & Health Sciences Dr. Jay Hoffman.

The MOATA competition not only serves as a platform for intellectual competition but also fosters a sense of camaraderie and sportsmanship, professional socialization, and networking among students studying athletic training.
