SEWARD, Neb. – The history of the Concordia University Men’s Soccer program dates back to the first official varsity season in 1972. During that time, eight head coaches have presided over the Bulldogs, which have made national tournament appearances in 2015 and 2022. The longest tenured head coaches have been Jack Kinworthy (19 years) and Jason Weides (15 years). A new online record book capturing that history has been made available online (see the link above).

This past season, Carlos Orquiz became the program’s new record holder for career games played (89), career assists (21) and assists in a single season (12). As a team, the ’22 Bulldogs won the GPAC tournament title, advanced to the national tournament and equaled program standards for most shutouts (nine) and fewest losses (three) in a season and for the longest unbeaten streak (12 games).

A record board on the first floor of the Walz Human Performance Complex honors individual and team records that have been achieved in the 51 years of the program’s existence. According to university archives, Concordia became the first institution in the state of Nebraska to establish a collegiate men’s soccer program.

NOTE: There are holes in information from some past years in program history. If you have information that might help us tighten the record book, please reach out with appropriate documentation.
