SEWARD, Neb. – A stellar first season as a Bulldog landed center fielder Alex Alstott a spot on the Omaha World-Herald’s All-Nebraska NAIA Baseball Team. Meanwhile, teammates in pitchers Mark Harris and Jaydee Jurgensen garnered honorable mention recognition from the Omaha news outlet.
Alstott enjoyed one of the greatest seasons for any Concordia position player in program history in 2015. The first team all-conference choice led the nation in triples with a school record 13 three-baggers. He also produced GPAC bests for the categories of on-base percentage (.488) and slugging percentage (.712). He batted .356 (47-for-132) with five home runs, 25 RBIs, 43 runs and 11 stolen bases.
On the mound, Jurgensen flourished as a senior. He went 6-1 with a 3.49 ERA and 54 strikeouts in 56.2 innings. Opposing batters hit just .224 off the lefty ace. Harris, a junior from Tucson, Ariz., topped the team with 17 pitching appearances. He posted a 4-2 record to go along with a 3.00 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 27 innings.
Under first-year head coach Ryan Dupic, Alstott and the Bulldogs broke a program record for wins in a season by going 26-18 in 2015.
