2/24 Concordia's Young Squad
Finishes 4th at MIAC Championship.
Concordia battled through several grueling matches to claim fourth
place at the MIAC Championship Meet. The Cobbers, who do not have a senior
on their roster and only four juniors, were the youngest squad at the meet.
Concordia was led by Zack Schroeder
(Jr., Wahpeton, ND) who finished second at 133 and qualified for nationals
as a wild-card partcipant. Schroeder, shaking off a season-long shoulder
injury won a hard fought semifinal match 4-3 against Chuck Griffith of
St. John's. He then went on to lose the championship match to Bryan Miller
of Augsburg. For Schroeder it was his third straight year that he has been
named All-MIAC. Schroeder is the first Concordia wrestler to qualify for
nationals since Nathan Reiff accomplished the feat back in 1999.
Aaron Swartz (Jr., Starbuck,
MN) also received All-MIAC honors at 141.
He rallied to win the consolation semifinal by a fall, and then had
a major decision in the third place match. Other Cobbers that finished
in the top four were - Cory
Winter (Fr., Cannon Falls, MN) at 149, Jesse
Barnacle (Fr., Deer River, MN) at 157, Rory
Olson (Jr., Wadena, MN) at 165 and Jared
Sannes (Jr.,Crookston, MN) at 197.
The future for Concordia is bright as all nine wrestlers that competed
in the MIAC Championship Meet will return next year. The NCAA Division
III National Meet will be held next weekend on March 2-3 at Waterloo, IA.
