The Concordia Bulldogs are coming into The NAIA DII Women’s Basketball National Championship with a solid 22-9 record, and finished 14-9 in their conference. Coached by Drew Olsen who has led the Bulldogs for the past 10 seasons. The Bulldogs are located in Seward, Nebraska and are a part of the Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC). Their only losses came from conference play. There was a slow start to the Bulldogs season but a second half push allowed them to be 4th seed in the Championship.
The Bulldogs are led by freshman Quinn Wragge with 14.5 points per game while also snagging 6.5 rebounds per game as well. Wragge was selected to the GPAC first team all-conference. Teammate Mary Janovich made second team all-conference even though she missed 13 games of the regular season.
Playing in a tough conference may give the Bulldogs an edge as they head into Championship games as they match up in the first round against Goshen College (Ind.).
