5/02 Bobby Clark Wins MIAC Decathlon!
Concordia junior track athlete Bobby Clark (Jr., Seeley Lake, Mont./Seeley-Swan HS) won the MIAC decathlon with a final total of 6,111 points. It is the first time that Clark has ever competed in a full decathlon event. His point total provisionally qualifies him for the NCAA Division III National Meet at St. Lawrence University on May 22-24.
That total is also the fifth highest point total in school history,
and he becomes the fourth Cobber to win the event at the MIAC Championships
in the past seven years. Last year Joe Schmidgall ('02, Morris,
Minn.) won the event with a total score of 6,264 points. Adam
Strainer ('01, East, Helena, Mont.) accomplished the feat as a junior
in 2000 with a school record of 6,747 points, and Ryan Williams
('97, St. Cloud, Minn.) won the event as a senior
Clark used a big first-event performance on the second day, running a 15.97 in the 110-meter high hurdles to score 736 points. Yesterday, he ripped off an 11.05 100-meter dash to score 851 points, his top-scoring event of the afternoon. He ran a 51.73 in the 400 meters to tally 753 points. Clark had personal best marks in seven of the ten events. His 100-meter dash time is the second fastest time in school history in the event.
4/26 Cobbers Finish 5th at St. John's
4/25 Cobbers Compete at the Drake Relays.
(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.
The Cobbers will send several athletes to the Drake Relays in Iowa on Saturday, April 25 while the remainder of the team competes at the St. John's Invitational on the same day.
4/17-19 Cobbers Compete at the Kansas

Has Been Postponed.
4/14 Mike Bare Finishes 13th at SJU
4/12 Cobbers Finish 2nd at St. John's
(COLLEGEVILLE)-- For the second time in three weeks the Concordia men's track team went to St. John's to compete in a meet, and for the second consecutive time finished second. The Cobbers, who ran at Jamestown in the middle of the week, improved their overall team point total from 105 points in the March 29th meet to 132 points.
The meet featured the season-opening 10,000-meter race for ultra-distance competitor Brian Stotts (Sr., Maple Grove, Minn./Maple Grove HS). He finished second in the 10K race at St. John's in a time of 32:43.84. That is the fourth fastest time in MIAC this season and is only 1:21 behind the national provisional time of 31:30.00.
Dennis Kline (So., Plymouth, Minn./Wayzata HS) was the only Cobber to win an individual event in the meet. He claimed the pole vault championship with a height of 13-7 3/4. That is a personal best height and places him second in the conference.
Andrew Campbell (Jr., Great Falls, Mont./Great Falls HS) backed up his performance in the middle of the week by throwing even farther at St. John's. He had a personal-best toss of 129-4 to finish second for the second consecutive meet. That mark is the 10th farthest distance in the conference this season.
Kirk Nelson (Sr., Hettinger, N.Dak.Hettinger HS) ran in his first individual race since injuring his leg during the indoor season. A return to form by the middle distance specialist will help the Cobbers jump several spots at the MIAC outdoor meet. Nelson finished fourth in the 800 meters at the SJU meet in a time of 2:02.07.
Like the women, Concordia will split their team up for two events over the weekend. The Cobbers will send the majority of their athletes to the NDSU on April 17, while a select few will compete at the Kansas Relays on April 17-19.
4/09 Cobbers Finish Fourth at Jamestown
The Cobbers received solid performances from several individuals. Ben Nylander (Lisbon, N.Dak./Lisbon HS) continues to have a successful junior year after sitting out most of last season due to injuries. Nylander finished second in the 1500-meter run in a time of 4:13.09. That is his best time of the year in the event and is the 13th fastest time in the MIAC this season. Andrew Campbell (Jr., Great Falls, Mont./Great Falls HS) had the other top-three finish for the Cobbers at Jamestown. Campbell's toss of 121-09 in the hammer throw was seven feet farther than the third-place finisher and less than four feet behind the winner.
(COLLEGEVILLE)-- Concordia used the start of the outdoor season to come up with their best finish of the 2002-03 season. The Cobbers finished in second place, 53 points ahead of third place North Central College (IL), at the St. John's Triangular.
Four Cobbers won events and several others had breakout performances. Jeremy Pris (Sr., Somers, Mont./Flathead HS) won the 400 meter hurdles in a time of 57.14 seconds, Brian Stotts (Sr., Maple Grove, Minn./Maple Grove HS) won the 5000 meter run in a time of 15:52.79, Andrew Campbell (Jr., Great Falls, Mont./Great Falls HS) won the hammer with a throw of 126-1, and Bobby Clark (Jr., Seeley Lake, Mont./Seeley-Swan HS) won the 110 meter hurdles with a time of 16.53 seconds.
Other highlights for the Cobbers included junior Ben Nylander (Lisbon, N.Dak./Lisbon HS) opening the Steeplechase season by finishing second in a time of 10:05.10 and Brody Clarke (Fr., Buffalo, Minn./Buffalo HS) throwing the hammer 119-10 to help Concordia to a 1-2 finish in the event. A pair of wrestlers helped secure points for the Cobbers. William Duppler (So., Valley City, N. Dak./Valley City HS) finished fifth in the shot put and Dennis Kline (So., Plymouth, Minn./Wayzata HS) put up a third place finish in the pole vault.
The Cobbers next meet is next Saturday, April 5, when they compete in the Jamestown Triangular at Jamestown, ND. The meet begins at 11:30am. Concordia's first home outdoor meet will be the Cobber Twilight Meet on April 22 at 3:00pm.
