Bulldogs compete at Bobcat Invite

7 OCT 2005

The women’s golf team competed at the Bobcat Invitational on Friday hosted by Peru State College. The meet was held at Table Creek Golf Course in Nebraska City.

The Bulldogs finished seventh in the eight team meet shooting a 468 as a team. It was somewhat of drop off as it was 34 strokes worse than Concordia’s last performance.

“We will continue to work on areas that need improvement prior to the final meet of the season,” said Head Coach Carl Everts. “The team, although somewhat inexperienced, has a great work ethic and is a pleasure to coach.”

Omaha Burke Freshman Natalie Swanda led the Bulldogs with a 111. Anna Hill and Molly McCree carded 114 and 115 respectively. Corrie Johnson rounded out the team scoring with a 128.

The Bulldogs will travel to Mitchell, S.D., on Thursday and Friday (Oct. 13 and 14) for the GPAC Championship Meet. Eleven conference schools will have teams competing at the meet.

Bulldogs earn points at GPAC meet

13-14 OCT 2005

The Concordia women’s golf team finished their season at the GPAC Championship Meet on Oct. 13 and 14 in Mitchell, S.D. The meet was hosted by Dakota Wesleyan University and played at Wild Oak Golf Club. Dakota Wesleyan claimed their fourth straight championship. The Bulldogs finished in 11th place.

Concordia posted their best 36-hole score of the season (884) in the final meet. Despite that fact, the Bulldogs still finished last out of all the teams competed. Head Coach Carl Everts was optimistic, as the team did accomplish one primary goal, finishing the meet. By finishing the team earned points for Concordia in the GPAC All-Sports Trophy race.

“We were able to post a team score at the conference meet,” said Everts. “It is important to finish and get a team score, especially entering the meet with only four players.”

The final round of the season also saw the Bulldogs net their best 18-hoe score of the season. Freshman Natalie Swanda once again led the Bulldogs, carding a 208, for 44th place. It was the fifth meet out of seven that Swanda has had the best score for Concordia.

“We improved this last meet,” added Everts. “But there is still much work to be done before next fall’s season.”

That work will start in March as the Bulldogs have spring practice under the guidance of assistant coaches Trish and Mark Croghan.

“The primary goal of spring golf will be to focus on individual improvement and prepare for the 2006 season,” stated Everts.

It is possible that the Bulldogs may compete in a couple of meets during the spring as well.

2006 season comes to a close at GPAC meet

24-25 APR 2006

The Concordia University, Nebraska men’s golf team wrapped up their season at the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) meet on Monday, April 24 and Tuesday April 25.

As a team the Bulldogs shot a two-day total of 650 (328-322) to finish in 10th place at the GPAC tournament. The five Bulldogs who golfed (Dustin Petrik, Mike Kulzer, Ryan Hrdlicka, Steffan Shelemey and Scott Beck) did mange to score slightly better than their season average as a team, but it wasn’t nearly good enough a the conference tournament which is packed full of excellent teams. The meet, held at Landsmeer Golf Club in Orange City, Iowa, was won by Nebraska Wesleyan.

Concordia was led by Petrik who fired a 161. Kulzer wasn’t far behind with a 162, followed by Hrdlicka with a 165. Rounding out the scoring for the Bulldogs was Shelemey at 163. None of the Concordia golfers were in the top 20 at the GPAC meet.

Back on April 22, the Bulldogs competed at the Doane Spring Tournament held in Crete, Neb., at the College Heights Golf Club. Concordia fared much better in the team standings, tying for second place with Midland Lutheran, finishing with a 322. The Bulldogs also had a junior varsity squad competing at the meet. The JV squad carded a 334 for sixth place.

Individually the Bulldogs were led by a member of the JV squad, Mike Frates. Frates took second place overall with a three over 73. Kulzer and Petrik also finished in the top 10, taking seventh (78) and 10th (80) respectively.

Looking forward to next season their will be some new faces in Concordia golf, as three of the top five players from this season are seniors and will not be returning. Coach Carl Everts is optimistic as the attention shifts from day-to-day golfing on to recruiting for next season.
