The facility is proving to be a wonderful addition to our working and teaching environment.

Cobber Teams Have Successful Fall

Cobber football started with two losses and then reeled off six straight wins. That led to a showdown with St. John's in the Fargodome for a share of the MIAC title on Nov. 5, played in front of 8,500 fans. Despite leading 19-14 late in the first half, the Cobs came away with a 35-19 loss. A 19-17 season-ending loss to Bethel in the Metrodome left the Cobbers 6-4, 6-3 and tied for 3rd in the MIAC. The women's golf team finished second in the MIAC tournament and men'sgolf finished third. The women ended the fall ranked No. 3 in the nation. They are awaiting another invitation to the Division III National Tournament in May.

Men's soccer jumped off to a 9-1-1 start and earned a No. 7 national ranking before losing some tough contests and ending up 10-6-2. Women's soccer also started well but finished 4-13. The Cobber volleyball team went 6-5 in the MIAC regular season and earned a non-conference win over the University of North Dakota on their way to a 16-21 season.

Both cross country teams struggled, each finishing 10th at their respective MIAC championships. But the opening of the Olson Forum, with its 200 meter track, has already greatly enhanced recruiting prospects for both programs.
