Lurz sets new program standard in indoor shot put

SEWARD, Neb. – Already the program record holder in the outdoor shot put, redshirt sophomore Zach Lurz added another record-breaking toss at Saturday’s Concordia Indoor Classic with a first-place mark of 55’ 2.25” in the indoor shot put.

The 2014 GPAC outdoor athlete of the week, Lurz leads all NAIA performers in the shot put. The native of Torrington, Wyo., currently ranks fourth in the weight throw with a measurement of 56’ 4 ¾”. Lurz won 2014 GPAC outdoor titles in the shot put and discus. He’s a two-time All-American.

The reigning GPAC field athlete of the week returns to action with his Bulldog teammates next weekend. Concordia will take part in both the Sevigne Husker Invite (Feb. 6-7) and the Fred Beile Classic (Feb. 7).
