If you missed Concordia University Nebraska sports this week, here is what happened.

The Concordia men’s tennis team finished up their season with the Great Plains Athletic Conference Tennis Championships in South Sioux City on April 26 with a 4-0 loss to the Doane University Tigers in quarterfinals. Play stopped once one team achieved a majority of the points. The team finishes with an 8-13 overall record and 2-4 conference record.

The Bulldogs were only able to take one of the doubles matches with No. 3s freshman Mitch Krumm and junior Grady Works winning 7-5. In singles, junior Manuel Rodriguez, sophomore Santiago Abadia and senior Luke Johnson lost their matches before the other three matches finished up to give Doane the win.

The Concordia softball team finished up their regular season with a split double header against the Dordt University Defenders on April 27 winning the first 2-0 and narrowly losing the second 3-2. GPAC Pod Play begins on May 1 with a 2 p.m. game against Morningside University in Orange City and with a record of 23-23 overall, and 13-9 conference, the Bulldogs snagged the fourth seed for the tournament.

The Bulldogs faced tough defense in the first game with quick innings made up of poorly placed hits and fast tags from the Defenders. However, junior pitcher Megan Eurich pitched a nearly flawless game with 2 hits and seven strikeouts to hold down the scoreboard. Junior Kylie Shottenkirk and freshman Aubriana Krieser continued to shine in the batting box, each netting an RBI off a single.

The second game started off promising with junior Aubrey Bruning scoring off big mistakes from Dordt. Bruning was walked, stole second, made it to third and then scored off a wild pitch. However, Dordt tied the game in the fourth off some defensive mistakes from Concordia and took the lead in the fifth. A single from junior Delanie Voshell allowed fellow junior Jennifer Katz to run home, but the Bulldogs were unable to rally more runs to take back the lead.
