The Concordia Business Club and the Lutheran Church Extension Fund held the first annual cornhole tournament on Apr. 27 in the quad on campus. 105 teams signed up to compete and play for prizes.

The tournament was held in the quad right next to the Dunklau Building. Teams of two entered the tournament and all proceeds went to the Garuna Foundation. The event started at 7 p.m. and would run until a winner was determined.

“The cornhole tournament was a great opportunity to support a great cause,” said sophomore Morgan Bowman. “We came in with the name ‘We Shuck’ but that was the opposite of what we did today. We ended up taking the dub.”

Although Bowman and her teammate Debroah Holle didn’t win the tournament and lost in the first round, Holle commented on her experience in the tournament.

“We were just trying to win, but really we weren’t going to,” said Holle.  “We were here for a really good time and to support a great cause.”

Snacks and drinks were provided for students and the LCEF had t-shirts and sunglasses for students as well. Multiple rounds were held and the competition went on until dark. 

In the end, the third place winners won a twenty five dollar gift card, the second place winners won a fifty dollar gift card and the first place winners each won a 40 inch smart tv.
