The “Legacy” Track and Field Meet on April 24, 2021, at Concordia University Ann Arbor is the first to be hosted at the new Thunder Sports Complex.
Dozens of track and field alumni gathered for the celebration, from graduates of the first-ever graduating class of 1965 to members from last year’s 2020 graduating class.
The pre-meet program included recognition of the Cardinals track and field team seniors. Then, the sustaining record-holders in attendance were called forth. The ceremony was completed with a kid’s race against Corky the Cardinal.
Also in attendance was Kay (Thunder) Haab, generous support of the university and the namesake of CUAA’s new complex. For Thunder-Haab, a track is a natural project to get behind; and not just because of her perfectly apt name. As a longtime Lutheran educator at St. Paul Lutheran School, located just north of campus, she has been a champion of the sport of track and field for over two decades. Among her many roles with the nearby PK–8 school, Thunder-Haab was the official record keeper for the school’s track and field events, which were hosted at the old CUAA facilities.
