SEWARD, Neb. – Thanks to top 15 individual finishes at the GPAC championships meet on Nov. 9, five combined Concordia men’s and women’s runners have officially received all-conference cross country recognition. Representing the Bulldogs on the list are: senior Beau Billings, senior Hayden Hohnholt, sophomore Jordan Potrzeba, junior Ben Sievert and junior Renee Williams.
Both Sievert and Hohnholt are repeat winners. Sievert, a native of Frankenmuth, Mich., has collected all-conference honors in each of his first three seasons at Concordia. Meanwhile, Hohnholt, who hails from Saratoga, Wyo., has raced to GPAC recognition for the second time in his career.
The trio of Billings, Potrzeba and Williams find themselves on the all-conference teams for the first times in their careers.
As a team, the Concordia men placed third at the conference meet and now look forward to the national championships on Nov. 23 after receiving an at-large bid. The women’s season has come to an end following a fifth-place conference finish.
