- Concordia head coach Bucky Burgau was named the MIAC Coach of the Year on Monday. Burgau earns MIAC Coach of the Year honors for the fourth time in his career. He also won the award in 1985, 1992 and 2004. Burgau led Concordia to a tie for second place in the final league standings after the Cobbers were picked to finish in ninth place in the MIAC Preseason Coach's Poll. Concordia finished the conference season with a 14-6 record which is a six-game improvement over last year's mark. CC was the No.2 seed in the conference playoffs and earned their fifth appearance in the league playoff tournament.
- Concordia finished the 2010 by losing to defending national champion St. Thomas 7-6 in 11 innings at the MIAC Tournament. The Cobbers staged a miraculous comeback in the opening game of the tournament against St. John's by scoring three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to win 4-3. CC then fell to Augsburg 6-1 before being edged by MIAC regular season and tournament champion St. Thomas. Concordia finished the season with 24 wins which is the most since 2003 season.
- Cobber senior shortstop Jake Krause (Moorhead, Minn.) led all CC hitters at the MIAC Tournament. Krause was 5-for-13 (.385) and scored five runs and drove in four. He hit a dramatic home run in the bottom of the ninth against St. Thomas to tie the game at 6-6.
Fastpitch Softball (11-28/8-14 MIAC)
- For the second straight season, Concordia had four players receive postseason conference honors. Sophomore pitcher/designated hitter Kesley Jones (Billings, Mont./Billings West HS) was named to the MIAC All-Conference Team while Maddie Haroldson (Sr., Sartell, Minn.) and Kaia Sele (Fr., Bemidji, Minn.) earned MIAC All-Conference Honorable Mention Honors.
- Jones was tied for the team lead in hitting in conference play in 2010. She hit .419 in 22 league games and was tied for ninth in the conference in average. She led team in on-base percentage with a .471 mark and was second in home runs (3), RBI (13) and slugging percentage (.629). Jones hit safely in 16 of the 22 MIAC games. She also had at least one hit in eight of the last nine games of the year and also 10 of the final 12. During that stretch she had six multiple-hit games.
Jones was also the team's top pitcher for the second straight year. She won four games in the MIAC and threw 68.1 innings. Jones was fourth in the MIAC in appearances (17) and was tied for the league lead in games finished (7).

Men's Track & Field (finished 8th at the MIAC Outdoor Meet)
- The top performance of the meet for Concordia came on Friday in the preliminary heats of the 100 meters. Senior Xavier Carroll (El Cajon, Calif./Grossmont HS) raced to a 10.93 in the third heat to become only the only the second Cobber athlete in the history of the program to run a sub 11-second 100 meters. His time was the second fastest in school history and was only .04 of a second off the school record set by Orea Wright in 2007. Unfortunately Carroll pulled up with a hamstring injury during Saturday’s final and was unable to repeat the performance, finishing ninth in the event.
- The other hard luck story at the conference meet for the Cobbers came from junior Tom Sederquist (Moorhead, Minn.). Sederquist had a pair of All-Conference Honorable Mention finishes at the meet. He was sixth in both the 5000 meters and 10000 meters. While leading the 10k with 2200 meters to go, Sederquist was clipped in the heal and ran shoeless to the finish.
- Concordia will now hit the trail in order to try and post national provisional qualifying marks for the upcoming NCAA Meet. A select few Cobbers will compete at UW-La Crosse Open and the North Central Invite on May 20-21.
Women's Track & Field (finished 4th at the MIAC Outdoor Meet)
- Concordia finished in fourth place at the recently completed MIAC Outdoor Championship Meet marking the 21st straight year that the Cobbers have posted a top 5 finish at the conference outdoor meet.
- The Cobbers were led by five-time All-American Leah Kay (Dassel, Minn./Dassel-Cokato HS) who capped her conference career by winning the high jump with a national provisional qualifying height mark of 5-05.00. It is the first time a CC athlete has one an individual event at a conference meet since 2008 when Kay won the heptathlon. Her height in the high jump is the top mark in the conference this year and among the top 20 in the nation. Kay also placed fourth in the javelin.
- Other than Kay's win in the high jump, the Cobbers had three other athletes earn All-Conference honors for finishing in the top three in an event. Alexa Kleingartner (Jr., West Fargo, N.D.) finished in third place in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 15.31. That mark is a personal best for Kleingartner and fourth fastest in school history. Kristin Slette (Sr., Moorhead, Minn.) qualified for the finals in the 400 meters and then bolted to a 57.45 in the finals to grab third place. That time is the third fastest in program history. Katherine Brott (Deer Lodge, Mont./Poweel County HS) was the final member of the All-Conference quartet. She also posted a third-place finish. She put up a toss of 127-02 in the javelin to earn her All-Conference award.
