SEWARD, Neb. – The GPAC wrestler of the week award has lived at Concordia in 2016. On Tuesday senior Jr Lule was named the GPAC/Hauff Mid-America Sports Wrestler of the Week, marking the sixth time over the past seven weeks that a Bulldog has garnered the honor. It’s the second time this season that Lule has received the accolade.

In his only outing last week, Lule again dominated a GPAC opponent. The nation’s seventh-ranked 157-pounder breezed to a 21-2 win by technical fall over Morningside’s Dakota Drenth in helping No. 7 Concordia to its second-straight outright GPAC title. Lule (30-7) has recorded five victories by technical fall and has outscored opponents by a combined 112-10 during conference duals. The Bulldogs have won 14-straight GPAC duals.

Lule and company now host the 2016 NAIA North National Qualifier on Saturday. Action inside Walz Arena is set to begin at 9 a.m. CT.
