SEWARD, Neb. – Assistant coach Ed McLaughlin will take a group of at least five Concordia University track and field athletes to the Seward Memorial Library for an appearance on Thursday (June 2). Select Bulldogs will participate in the library’s summer reading program with the theme, “on your marks, get set, read.”

The session will run from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Thursday. The athletes will share their life stories explaining the process of becoming a champion. Children in attendance will be given the opportunity to ask questions of the Bulldogs.

Athletes slated to appear at the Seward Memorial Library include Allie Brooks (Seward), Jose Rojas (Nogales, Ariz.), Josh Slechta (Kennard, Neb.), Tricia Svoboda (Norfolk, Neb.) and Lucas Wiechman (Pilger, Neb.). Additional athletes may also be present.

The Concordia track and field programs are coming off of a women’s outdoor national title and men’s national runner-up finish this past weekend in Gulf Shores, Ala.
