SEWARD, Neb. – Fresh off a win over Hastings in its season-opening dual on Jan. 25, the Concordia University cheer team fell by a score of 69.55 – 67.55 in Wednesday’s (Feb. 8) matchup with Doane. The Bulldogs and Tigers went head-to-head inside the PE Center Gym following the Concordia women’s basketball game.

First-year head coach Mandi Maser’s squad’s record stands at 1-1 overall. The dual schedule has been completed.

Seventeen Bulldogs performed during Wednesday’s competition. The group included the squad’s only two seniors, Sarah Johnson and Katherine Vogel.

Concordia now shifts its attention to the annual GPAC Cheer and Dance Championships, which will take place at Hastings on Saturday. The Bulldog cheer team is slated to take the floor at 12:45 p.m. CT. For more information on the GPAC championships meet, click HERE.

The 2017 season marks the first year that the NAIA will sponsor a national championship (March 10-11) for both dance and cheer. The NAIA is the only athletics association to offer a national championship in these sports.
