Schwalenberg picks up conference honor

Concordia’s Jena Schwalenberg picked up GPAC honors earlier this week for her efforts in the Hastings Invite.  She was named GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women’s Runner-of-the-Week on Wednesday.    

Schwalenberg, a junior from Columbus, placed second in the Bronco Invite last weekend with a 5k time of 18:39.  A total of 39 runners competed in the event, and the Bulldogs won the team competition with 24 points.  The Concordia women are now tied for 19th in the latest NAIA Top 25 Poll.  

Concordia is scheduled to take part in the Mount Marty Invite in Yankton, S.D., on Saturday.
