SEWARD, Neb. – The win streak continued last week for senior Marlene Maier, who has been impressive since transferring to Concordia. On Wednesday (March 27), she was rewarded by being named the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Women’s Tennis Player of the Week. It’s Maier’s first award as a Bulldog.

Maier again held down the No. 1 spot in the singles lineup in last week’s 7-2 team victory at Nebraska Wesleyan University. In that match, Maier won in singles, 6-2, 6-0, over the Prairie Wolves’ Madi Hinshaw. A native of Uppsala, Sweden, and transfer from NCAA Division I Alcorn State University, Maier has won eight singles matches in a row and owns a 9-1 record this season.

Maier and the Bulldogs (7-3) are getting ready to host Hastings today (March 27) in their first GPAC match of the 2019 season. First serve is set for 4 p.m. CT from the Bulldog Tennis Courts.
