Alum Morrissey wins Omaha Corporate Cup 10K

Colin Morrissey, a 2013 graduate and 2012-13 Concordia Senior Male Athlete of the Year, won the 2014 Omaha Corporate Cup 10K race held Sunday in the streets of Omaha. A day earlier, Morrissey placed second behind only current Bulldog senior Ben Sievert with a time of 16:19.47 on the 5K course at the annual Blue-White Alumni meet on the Concordia University campus.

Morrissey finished the 10K Sunday race in 33:27, for an average of 5:23 per mile. His time out-paced a field of 2,630 runners at his hometown Omaha Corporate Cup 10K.

Morrissey concluded his Concordia career with three all-conference cross country performances (2012 GPAC runner of the year) while piling up 13 all-conference finishes as a distance runner on the track. The Omaha native captured conference titles in the 3,000 meter run at the 2013 GPAC Indoor Championships and in the one mile run at the 2011 GPAC Indoor Championships. His title at the 2011 conference meet helped boost him to GPAC Male Athlete of the Meet honors.

On the national level, Morrissey qualified for three separate national championship meets throughout his time at Concordia. He finished as an All-American in the 3,000 meter run at the 2010 NAIA Indoor National Championships.
