GPAC release

SEWARD, Neb. – After recording yet another shutout, junior Chrissy Lind has reeled in another weekly award from the GPAC. On Tuesday the conference tabbed Lind as the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week. Lind earned the same accolade twice as a sophomore and once as a freshman.

Lind is the third Bulldog women’s soccer player this season to receive GPAC weekly honors, joining Jessica Skerston (Sept. 22) and Esther Soenksen (Sept. 8). Over last week’s action, Lind surrendered just a single goal in 180 minutes at goalkeeper for 18th-ranked Concordia (7-2-1, 1-1-1 GPAC). She made a combined 19 saves to run her season total to 43.

The native of Colorado Springs ranks 30th among all NAIA goalkeepers with a career best .794 goals against average. She has four shutouts this season and a program record 17 for her career. Over 46 career games, Lind has 193 saves in more than 4,100 minutes played.

Lind and the Bulldogs return to action on Wednesday when they host Midland (6-3-1, 2-1 GPAC) at 5:30 p.m. On Saturday Concordia will travel to Sioux City, Iowa, to take on Morningside (6-3-1, 2-1 GPAC) for a 5:30 p.m. kickoff.
