 Great victories and disappointing defeats characterized Concordia's fall sports.

Football  Fall 85

The football team closed its most successful season since 1981 with a 38-0 win over the Augsburg Auggies at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis Nov. 9. Showing tremendous effort and ability throughout the season, the team finished with a 7-3 overall record and an MIAC record of 7-2, which put them in a tie with St. Thomas for second place, just four points behind the champions, St. John's. A homecoming loss to the Johnnies and a subsequent defeat by St. Olaf stifled the Cobbers' conference title hopes.

Named to the MIAC all-conference first team on defense were Russell Winkels '86 and James Southwick '88. Senior Harry Teaster was named to the first team on offense. Named to the second all-conference team were Steven Ringdahl, offense, and Mark Spangrud, defense.

Women's soccer   Fall 85

The women's soccer team finished with a 5-10-2 record, for a seventh-place finish in the conference. A bright spot in the season came when the Cobbers defeated Gustavus Adolphus and Macalester for consolation championship honors in the MIAC tournament Nov. 1-2.

Named to the MIAC allconference team were senior Traci Poffenberger and junior Vicki Kastner. The selection was Kastner's third straight.

Men's Golf   Fall 85

In golf, the men's team tied with St. Olaf for second place in the MIAC conference meet Oct. 13-14. Lance Butner '87 was the lone all-conference player for the Cobbers.

Women's Golf   Fall 85

The women's team had an abbreviated season due to the weather and had no end-of-season conference play.
