Cobbers Full of Surprises at Cobber Dual Meet.

(Moorhead, Minn.)-- Concordia had two athletes win individual events and finished fourth at the Cobber Dual Meet. The Cobbers finished the event with a final record of 1-4. Jamestown College won the event with a 4-0 record and Bemidji State was second with a final mark of 3-1.

The biggest surprise of the meet for Concordia came in the high jump where sophomore transfer Luke Draxten (Fergus Falls, MInn.) won the event with a jump of 6-4. It was Draxten's first indoor track meet in three years and he has only recently started to train for the event. Joining Draxten as Concordia's only other event winner was Kyle Halliday (Jr., Willmar, Minn.) who captured the 600-meter run in a time of 1:24.63. It is a personal best time for Halliday and rates in the top eight times ever run by a Concordia athlete in the event.

Ben Nylander (Sr., Lisbon, N.Dak.) finished fourth in the 1500 meters, one of the toughest individual events in the meet due to the quality competition. Nylander ran a 4:11.73 and was only .31 out of third place. He also placed second in the 1000 meters with a mark of 2:37.17.

Other notable Concordia finishes included Louis Bedard (So., Brainerd, Minn.), who placed third in the 10,000 meters in a time of 10:03.28. First-year sprinter Ryan Smith (Grand Forks, N.Dak./ Red River HS) was ninth in the 55 meters in a time of 6.91, and the distance medley relay team of Dan Bye (Fr., Mankato, Minn./Mankato Loyola HS), Greg Moss (So., Lakewood, Colo., Green Mountain HS), Halliday and Nick Myran (Jr., Kenyon, Minn./Kenyon-Wanamingo HS) finished second with a 11:07.95 mark.

The Cobber multi-event athletes will compete in the Cobber Pentathlon on Friday, February 6 at 6:00pm, while the rest of the squad will compete in the Bison Open on Saturday, February 7 at 3:30pm.
