Zack Schroeder
Wahpeton, ND
Became the first Concordia to wrestle at the national meet since 1999.

Concordia junior wrestler  Zack Schroeder (Wahpeton, ND) participated at the NCAA Division III National Wrestling Meet. Schroeder received a bye in the first round in the 133 pound weight class before losing his second round match to Dan Flounders of the College of New Jersey 8-0. Flounders advanced  to the championship match in the weight class. Schroeder dropped a close 7-4 decision in the quarterfinals of the consolation round to Dorian Cast of Olivet College.

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.

Other newcomers that will be looking to make an impact are Dan Vulcan (Fr., Florence, MT) at 174, JakeWiese (So., Pelican Rapids, MN) at 184, Jon Lowry (Fr., S. Sioux City, NE)  at 187 and Jared Sannes (Crookston, MN) and Lance Mumm (Benson, MN) at 197.
