SEWARD, Neb. – After a year hiatus, the Concordia Twilight Meet is back. The event was not held last year due to the installation of new turf and the resurfacing of the track, which began last May. The 2017 Twilight Meet is set to get started at 2 p.m. CT on Friday. The event schedule can be viewed HERE. Live results will be provided by Black Squirrel Timing and will be available HERE.

Head coach Matt Beisel’s squads are returning to action after the men placed second and the women third at last week’s GPAC outdoor championships. A total of 40 Bulldog athletes garnered all-conference recognition based on their performances at the meet. Winner of four individual GPAC titles, Lucas Wiechman garnered the award for GPAC Outstanding Track and Field Athlete of the Year.

Concordia will be one of 14 institutions represented at the Twilight Meet. The Bulldogs sport NAIA USTFCCCA national rankings of third on the women’s side and sixth on the men’s side. Conference competition includes the likes of Briar Cliff, Dakota Wesleyan, Doane, Hastings and Midland.

The outdoor season will culminate with the 2017 NAIA Outdoor Track and Field National Championships, held May 25-27 in Gulf Shores, Ala.
