NORFOLK, Neb. – The Concordia men’s golf team placed sixth out of fourteen teams at the 2015 Nebraska Intercollegiate with a score of 312-314—626 on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 9-10. Reid Wiebe tied for second over the two day event, carding a 71-75—146.

Said head coach Brett Muller, “Reid and Russell played much closer to where they should be consistently. Reid didn’t have his best but just found a way to put up a good number, which is something we all need to continue to get better at.”

Along with Wiebe, Russell Otten also shot in the 70’s both days, collecting a score of 74-77—151. Otten’s mark tied him for 11th place. Nolan Zikas recorded an 80-84—164. Close behind Zikas was Jared Knoepfel with an 84-81—165. Rounding out the Concordia squad was Tyler Ehresman with a score of 87-84—171.

Also competing for the Bulldogs was Court Croghan who marked up an 80-83—163 and Garrett Suchanek with a final score of 81-85—166.

The team finished sixth with a two day score of 312-314—626. The Bulldogs were outshot by GPAC competition, Midland University who finished first (299-287—586) and fourth place Hastings College (304-310—614). Concordia finished ahead of Nebraska Wesleyan. The Prairie Wolves finished in seventh place (313-317—630).

“As a team, we have to be more consistent,” noted Muller. “There are way too many big numbers but we have a long offseason to get better.”

The Nebraska Intercollegiate marked the end of the fall golf season for the Concordia Bulldogs who will resume their season in the spring.
