Concordia Girls Basketball

My friend Ralph picked me up this evening and we saw the Concordia girls beat Hastings 76-57. It was a good game and much closer than the score indicates. The Hastings Broncos led most of the first half with the Concordia Bulldogs getting  a 22-21 lead at half time. The Broncos closed to within 3 points with about 7 minutes to go after the "Dogs" had built a 12 point lead. Kelsey made 7 points within a minute and the Bulldogs pulled away. Concordia is now 16-1 for the season and were ranked #1 in the NAIA standings prior to their one loss in 2 overtimes at Dordt on January 5th. One of the girls on the Seward HS team that graduated last spring with having won 101 consecutive games, is on the CU team. Jenna, #40 in the picture is a 6-2" freshman from Albion, NE and one of the starting 5. Most of the girls are from small Nebraska towns and were "stars" in HS. They have made the transition to the "next level" and certainly demonstrate the ability and dedication to be Champions. We're lucky to have this quality of entertainment available to us in our small town.
