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

Concordia Wrestling hosted the Great Plains Athletic Conference Wrestling Championships in Seward from Feb. 16-17. The team placed fifth overall in points and qualified three wrestlers for the national championship: junior Tommy Wentz and seniors Creighton Baughman and Mason Garcia. Wentz won second in the 165 class, Baughman won second in the 141 class, and Garcia won third in the 197 class.

Freshman Barret Brandt finished fourth in his bracket after falling in the semifinals of the 165 weight class but added two more pins to his school record of 24 pins in a single season. Wild card picks are yet to be announced for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Wrestling Championships held in Park City, Kan. over Feb. 29-March 2.

Concordia Cheer and Dance finished up their regular season with the Dordt University Invitational on Feb. 17 in Sioux Center, Iowa. Cheer won first with a score of 80.9 and dance won third with a score of 81.4. The teams faced several GPAC rivals such as Morningside University, Doane University, and of course, the hosts Dordt University. The teams will have a few weeks before the GPAC Championships scheduled March 8 for dance and March 9 for cheer.

Concordia women’s tennis only had one dual this week as their home match against Tabor College was canceled. They faced the Ottawa University Braves in Lawrence, Kan. losing 6-1. Sophomore Mariana Molano scored the one point for the Bulldogs with her win over Paula Persson. The team is now 2-2 and are scheduled to rejoin the men against Kansas Wesleyan University in Grand Island on Feb. 22.

Concordia men’s tennis, however, did face Tabor College at home in the Walz Fieldhouse, scoring a 5-2 win over the Bluejays. The Bulldogs started strong by taking the doubles point. Sophomore Santiago Abadia, freshmen Michael Bedrosian and Mitch Krumm, and junior Manuel Rodriguez Berdud each won their singles matches to cement the dual for Concordia. The team is now 2-4 for the season.
