SEWARD, Neb. – Due to COVID-19 positives within the program, Concordia University Women’s Soccer has withdrawn from the 2020 NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championship Opening Round. A decision was made by Concordia University leadership early Wednesday (April 14) morning to pull the team out of the national championship event. The decision was made with the health and safety of the student-athletes and staff as the primary concern.

Head Coach Thomas Goines’ squad had earned an automatic bid to the national tournament by winning the GPAC postseason championship. Concordia has been rewarded with three national tournament bids in the history of the program. The season has come to a conclusion with the Bulldogs sporting an overall record of 11-6-2. Concordia had been scheduled to play third-ranked Keiser University (Fla.) at 6 p.m. CT on Thursday (April 15) as part of the Columbia (Mo.) Bracket in the NAIA Opening Round.
