(MOORHEAD)-- Concordia hosted the annual Cobber Twilight track meet at the Jake Christiansen Stadium and Track Complex and came away with valuable experience for next months MIAC Outdoor Championship Meet. The Cobbers finished tied for fifth place with Jamestown College and only 10 points behind third place MSU-Moorhead. North Dakota State University won the meet with a team total of 256.5 points.

Junior speedster Bobby Clark (Jr., Seeley Lake, Mont./Seeley-Swan HS) continues to give Concordia a legitimate point-winner in several events. Clark finished third in the 400-meter hurdles in a time of 57.17 His 400-meter hurdle time is the eighth best mark in the conference this spring.

Jeremy Pris (Sr., Somers, Mont./Flathead HS) finished just behind Clark in the 400-meter hurdles. His time of 57.24 was good for fourth place and puts him right behind Clark on the conference honor roll.

Ben Nylander (Lisbon, N.Dak./Lisbon HS) ran a season-best time of 9:47.43 in the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Nylander finished second in the event and currently sits in fourth place among conference runners. Brian Stotts (Sr., Maple Grove, Minn./Maple Grove HS) helped Concordia score valuable team points as he finished runner-up in the 5,000 meters. His time of 15:43.30 betters his season best time by over eight seconds.

Garrick Larson's team placed well in both relays with the 4x400-meter relay team of Justin Hendricks (Sr., Luverne, Minn./Luverne HS), Jordan Talge (So., Moorhead, Minn./Moorhead HS), Nick Steffens (Sr. Aitkin, Minn./Aitkin HS) and Matt Handwerk (Fr., Great Falls, Mont./Great Falls HS) finishing in fourth place.

The highlight in the field events for the Cobbers was Dennis Kline's (So., Plymouth, Minn./Wayzata HS) steadily improving pace in the pole vault. Kline cleared the bar at 13-9, which is a season best and the third highest mark in the MIAC this season.
