Matt Nagel/Concordia Head Coach: “We set that high goal last year and it’s there again this year and they applied it last year and now they are applying it again this year and they are starting to see the success. We belong as a top team in the country.”

Cody Kasprick/Cobber Sr. 285 Pounds: “From a freshman until now in the room I can feel just the whole atmosphere is different and the whole program has gotten better.”

Jake Long/Cobber Sr. 149 Pounds: “I think overall, we just know we are wrestling well, we are working hard we are doing the right things it's just been a great first half. We know what we can do and we are just starting to kinda show it at the year progresses on.”

Massive showdown on Saturday as Concordia will host Augsburg ,this is the first time that the Cobbers have been ranked ahead of the Augies, they come in ranked 4th.
