Concordia All-Conference Award Recap

Thomas and Lester Walk Away With MIAC Men's Tennis Postseason Awards.
ST. PAUL-- Concordia senior Jake Thomas (Indian Hills, Colo./Conifer HS) and head coach Dave Lester earned MIAC postseason honors as announced by the league office on Tuesday.

Thomas was named to the All-Conference team and Lester was named the MIAC Coach of the Year. It is the first postseason award for both Thomas and Lester and caps a breakhrough season for Concordia men's tennis.

Thomas, the lone senior on the Cobber squad, was the team's #1 singles player and finished the year with a 10-7 overall record. He finishes his three seasons with the Cobbers with 25 overall wins.

Lester was the architect behind the resurgence of the men's program in 2005. The Cobbers finished the year with a 12-6 overall record and a 6-3 mark in conference play. The 12 victories during the season is the most for a Cobber men's team since the 1992 season. It is also the first time since 1992 that Concordia has cracked the 10-win barrier. During the year Concordia won seven straight matches, which was the longest winning streak since the 1991 campaign.
