With victories in six of their last eight games the Concordia baseball team has put itself in the hunt in the Great Plains Athletic Conference race.
The Bulldogs are 8-4 and part of a five-way tie for first place that includes Midland, Morningside, Briar Cliff and Northwestern of Iowa.
“It has been kind of as crazy year in the GPAC and everybody kind of feels like they don’t know what to expect when the games are played”, said Concordia coach Ryan Dupic. “It is fun to be in the hunt and it is great for the guys to play fun and meaningful games late in the year and it is something we are going to enjoy.”
The offense has picked up in the past few weeks and Concordia is averaging just under nine runs in the last eight games.
Dupic says with five teams tied for first there is no reason to watch the scoreboard or even look at the remaining schedule.
“People have asked me who the favorite it and who plays who and I tell them I have no idea. I am not even going to try and figure it out and I don’t know what happens on the tie breakers yet and we are just going to keep having fun.”
Concordia visits York College in nonconference play later today before hosting Midland in a key GPAC doubleheader on Saturday.
