2000 Season Preview
Since the inception of MIAC women's golf in 1991, Concordia has won eight of the nine team championships, including five straight since the 1995 season. To continue this dominance in 2000 the Cobbers will need strong performances from Jenni Kovash (Sr. Moorhead MN, Moorhead) who was a third team All-American selection in 2000 and Maria Amlen  (Sr. Stockholm, Sweden) who placed ninth in last springs NCAA national meet. Missing from last years NCAA runner-up team will be All-Americans Kari Weidner (Fargo) and Christie Strecker (Albert Lea) who graduated in the spring . Coach Duane Siverson is looking to add solid golfers in the final three spots on the team to continue the Cobbers tradition of excellence. The strength of the team should come from a strong incoming class of first year students.

Dating back to 1991 the Cobbers have won the MIAC eight times and been NCAA National Runners-up twice. During that time frame the Cobbers have had over 30 All-MIAC performers, and have placed 12 golfers on All-American teams.
