Home Sports Sower sports roundup, April 6

By Maddy Peters, Sports Editor


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

The Concordia men’s golf was scheduled to have the Bulldog-Tiger Cup on April 6, but the event was postponed due to high winds and rain. A reschedule date has yet to be determined.

The Concordia softball team was swept in a double header by the No. 11 Northwestern College Red Raiders in Orange City, Iowa on April 5 losing the first game 2-0 and the second 4-0. The team is now 12-20 overall and 2-8 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. Their next games are against University of Jamestown at Plum Creek Ballpark on April 12 with the first pitch scheduled at 5 p.m.

Batting was tough on both sides of the field with junior Megan Eurich and Northwestern’s Kameryn Etherington pitching low hitters, and the defense out in the field preventing people from getting on base. The Red Raiders scored their two runs in the bottom of the fifth after errors from the backfield allowed them to move across the bases. Eurich pitched all six innings and had three hits for two runs, six strikeouts and no errors.

The second game was a much tougher battle for Eurich, who allowed significantly more hits than in the previous game. She went eight hits for four runs, no strikeouts and recorded three errors. Senior Taylor Glause had two hits in the game, but that was the most offense the Bulldogs could muster.

The Concordia women’s tennis team also faced Northwestern on Friday evening winning 5-2 out on the Bulldog tennis courts. The team is now 7-6 overall and 2-1 in the Great Plains Athletic Conference. They next face Doane University on April 9 in Crete at 4:30 p.m.

The game started off strong with a sweep of the doubles point. In the singles, sophomore Mariana Molano, freshman Chakira Derman, junior Tessa Blough and freshman Alexa Richert won their singles matches to seal the win for the Bulldogs. Junior Kylie Freudenburg took her match to the third tie-breaking set but was unable to pull through.

The men’s tennis team waited a day to face Northwestern in the Walz Fieldhouse on April 6 to avoid the poor weather. The team eked out a narrow 4-3 win to gain their first conference win of the season. The team is now 6-10 overall and 1-2 in the GPAC. They next play Doane University on April 10 in Crete starting at 4:30 p.m.

The saving grace for the Bulldogs was the doubles sweep which put the Bulldogs a point ahead with the split singles matches. Sophomore Hugo Fuentes, junior Manuel Rodriguez Berdud and freshman Michael Bedrosian each won their games.
