SIOUX CITY, Iowa – After a break since the Mount Marty Fall Invite, the Concordia University Women’s Golf team returned to action on Wednesday (Sept. 14) for round one of the annual Lila Frommelt Fall Classic hosted by Briar Cliff. After day one of two of the event, the Bulldogs reside in sixth place via their team score of 344. The field of competitors at Green Valley Golf Course in Sioux City, Iowa, includes 12 teams and 68 golfers.
