Concordia University Preview

A veteran team with five seniors in the lineup will take the mat for Concordia this season.  Led by Great Lakes placewinners Joe Massman (6th) and Adam Schultz (4th), Concordia again has a good schedule in 2008-2009 with the Concordia Open, Desert Duals, and Wheaton Invitational all on their slate.  Massman, the team MVP last year, sits sixth on the Concordia wins list with 74, and he should top 100 for his career with another good season in 2008-2009.  He has placed in the top six each of the past three years in the region.  Schultz was 21-6 at 197 last season and returns for his senior year as well.  A pair of Wisconsin qualifiers join in Jeremiah Potter and Jerrod Watkins, and Michigan state placer Erik Lawrence comes in to bolster the upper weights.  Massman and Schultz will be eyeing a first trip to the NCAA tournament while the rest of the team works to improve on last year’s 6-4 record.
