Nick Myran is One of Three Cobber Fall Athletes Earn NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship!
- Complete Details on NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Award-Winners
MOORHEAD-- Three Concordia fall athletes were awarded a prestigious NCAA postgraduate scholarship. Nick Myran (Sr., Kenyon, Minn./Kenyon-Wanamingo HS) from the cross-country team, Jordan Talge (Sr., Moorhead, Minn.) of the Cobber football team and Jessica Walden (Sr., Hawley, Minn.) from volleyball all earned the $7,500 award sponsored by the NCAA.

Concordia had the most athletes awarded the scholarship of any NCAA Division I, II or III institution. The list of colleges or universities that had athletes win awards included: Duke University, Stanford University, Boston College and North Dakota State University. The three Cobber award-winners also represent the most by any MIAC school in a single season. 

The trio was part of a contingent of seven MIAC student-athletes to earn the award in a fall sport. The MIAC garnered seven of the 56 overall awards given in fall sports and had the most selections of any single conference, with the Big 12 (five), University Athletic Association (three) and Pac-10 (three) following the MIAC.(More)

The College Sporting News Feature on Nick Myran.
- MIAC Profiles of Excellence - Nick Myran
For many college athletes, their decision to attend a particular school is influenced by the perception of the school they developed while being recruited by the school. They often choose a school based on the intensity that school recruited them. But Nick Myran chose to attend Concordia College because Concordia didn’t recruit him.

“A recruiting representative from Concordia came to my high school,” related Nick. “I got interested in Concordia based on what I heard that day about the school’s academics. The more I looked into Concordia, the more it sounded like a perfect fit for me. I came to visit the campus on a special weekend in the winter when they had kids from all sports visiting; it was sort of a sports recruits weekend. I loved the campus, the people I met and everything about Concordia and decided it was the right place for me.”(More)

- Complete NCAA Central Region Results
WAVERLY, Iowa-- It's been 12 years since Concordia has placed a men's cross country runner at the NCAA national Meet - and now the wait is finally over! Nick Myran (Sr., Kenyon, Minn./Kenyon-Wanamingo HS) finished eighth at the NCAA Central Region Meet in Waverly, Iowa in a time of 25:29 and was the top individual qualifier from the Central Region. It is the second straight season that he has earned All-Region Honors.

As a team, Concordia finished in 17th position with 429 total points. St. Olaf won the Region meet with a final team score of 81 points. 

Myran advances to the NCAA Division III National Meet at the UW-Eau Claire on Saturday, November 20 at 11:00pm. Myran was deemed the region's top individual runner because the seven runners that finished ahead of him at the meet, all came from school's that qualified for the national meet as a team. The top four teams from the region qualify for the national meet, and then the top six individuals not from those schools also earn a trip to nationals. St. Olaf, Carleton, Wartburg and Nebraska Wesleyan finished in the top four, and all had at least one runner in the top seven of the meet. Myran topped the non-top four school runners in the meet, and was the fourth fastest runner from the schools in the MIAC.(More)
