SEWARD, Neb. – For the third time this season, a Concordia wrestler has been named the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Wrestler of the Week. Jr. Lule grabbed the honor for the first time in his career.

Eighth-ranked Lule wrestles in the 157 lb. weight class for the Bulldogs and owns a 29-7 overall record and an 11-2 dual record. In the past week, the California native posted two wins by technical fall over Doane and Northwestern. Martin Phillips, Lule’s opponent in the Doane dual, is ranked 12th in the nation. 

This is Lule’s first GPAC weekly honor and the Bulldogs’ third of the season. Previously, Andrew Schulte was recognized as the wrestler of the week two different times. Concordia’s wrestling team tops the GPAC with a 4-0 conference record and an overall dual record of 9-4.

The Bulldog wrestlers will be back in action tonight as they travel to Briar Cliff University for a GPAC dual. Start time is set for 7 p.m.
