Head coach Todd LaVelle’s varsity squad is set to play on a total of 22 dates during the spring of 2017, as announced on Thursday (Sept. 8).

The 2017 Bulldogs will make their home debut on March 14 when Kansas Wesleyan University pays a visit to Plum Creek Park. Concordia is scheduled to play a total of 14 games in Seward, with each of those contests earmarked between March 14 and April 26.
