Loss in GPAC tournament ends 2006 season

4 NOV 2006

The Concordia Bulldogs had three players reach double figures but it wasn’t enough as the 23rd-ranked Doane College Tigers stopped the Bulldogs in four games (-25, -21, 29-31, -27) in the GPAC Tournament quarterfinals on Saturday night in Crete, Neb.

It was the fourth meeting of the two teams this season. Doane (26-7) got the better of Concordia three times. Shack” Invite on Sept. 9, in five games.

The Tigers, the third seed, advance to the semifinals of the GPAC tournament and will face second-seeded Northwestern. For the second straight year Concordia (20-14) finishes the season with 20 wins.

The Bulldogs didn’t go quietly on Saturday. Down two games to none, but Bulldogs rallied in game three, coming from behind to get the win 31-29. After leading for a good portion of game four, Concordia dropped the deciding game, 30-27.

While neither team hit the ball extremely well, Doane out hit the Bulldogs by almost fifty points, .163 to .119, and had 10 more kills, 66-56. The Tigers also out dug the Bulldogs, 112-92.

For Doane, Kari Hochstein had a match-high 24 kills and hit .259 while Allison Weaver had 18 kills and 22 digs.

Senior outside hitter Natalie Koopman-Meyers led the Bulldogs attack, recording 16 kills. Koopman-Meyers added 20 digs to complete the double double. Fellow senior Jaelle Rodenbeck finished with 27 digs and nine kills.

In the middle for Concordia junior Katie Werner tallied 12 kills on 36 attempts (.250 hitting percentage) and had six blocks at the net. Freshman Kelli Ziegler was one dig away from her third triple double of the year finishing with 31 set assists, 11 kills and nine digs. She also had three block assists.

Four earn 2006 All-GPAC honors, Werner named first-team
