Under second-year coach Collette Folstad the women's basketball team sailed to an 18-8 overall record (including conference, nonconference and tournament games), and a 6-1 Minn-Kota conference record. They were the only Concordia team to actually capture a conference title this year, and won their Holiday Tournament. The team also finished second in large-college division and fourth overall in the Minnesota Women's State Basketball tournament, and took second in the All-Lutheran School Tournament at Concordia, in St. Paul.
Rachel Gaugert, a 5' 10" sophomore from Alexandria, MN, paced team members in scoring with 491 total points for the season had the highest percentage of field goals 57.6 and free throws, 65.5; led in rebounds 246 and made 99 interceptions.
Rachel and teammate Sondra Unkenholz senior from Silver Spring, MD, were named to the All Minn-Kota Conference team.
Cobber women have had two winning seasons with Coach Folstad, who explains she has turned the non-aggressive Concordia women into a doer's team. She has taught them a 'fast-break" type of basketball and has given them the confidence they needed to win. Cobber women's 38.1 percent shooting average is extremely high, according to Collette. Most women's teams, on the average shoot 25 percent.
