Athletics: Ragin’ Cajuns Athletics Holds Inaugural Letter Jacket Ceremony
LAFAYETTE, La. – The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns Athletics Department held its inaugural Letter Jacket Ceremony last week as 99 student-athletes were awarded with their letterman jacket at the Donald and Janice Mosing Student-Athlete Performance Center.
"We felt this was an important piece to improve the student-athlete experience and celebrate their achievements," Director of Athletics Bryan Maggard, Ph.D. said. "The Letter Jacket Ceremony is a great event for everyone involved and helps to add to the importance of each student-athlete's contributions to our program."
Members of seven programs including men's and women's basketball, men's and women's track and field, men's and women's tennis, softball, baseball and golf were honored during the ceremony. Each student-athlete was presented their jacket by a member of their coaching staff.
The group of lettermen were recognized for their contributions to their sport program during the 2017 spring season. Ragin' Cajuns Hall of Famer and two-time Olympic medalist Hollis Conway was on hand to speak to the new lettermen about the importance of receiving their letterman jacket.
Each semester the athletics department will hold a Letter Jacket Ceremony to honor the letterwinners from the previous semester.
