The Concordia women’s track team had three student-athletes open their season on Friday. Kim Wood, Jordyn Sturms and Emily Sievert competed in the one mile race at the Holiday Inn Invitational at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Wood placed sixth among 25 runners across all divisions with a time of 5:06.17, which is an NAIA National qualifying time. Sturms finished in 5:31.1, good for 12th place and Sievert finished 15th with a time of 5:41.76.

The trio will join the rest of the men’s and women’s track teams Saturday at the Nisely Invite hosted by Doane College.
