A Tale Of Two Days On Season-Opening Weekend
ST. PAUL, Minn. (9/04/21)---It was a tale of two days for the Cobbers in their opening weekend of the 2021 season. Concordia dropped a pair of sweeps on Friday and then swept a pair of matches on Saturday to close out the weekend.

CC responded by rolling over Crown (25-17, 25-21, 25-9) in the first match of Day, and then swept Bethany Lutheran (25-17, 25-19, 25-17) in the final match of the weekend.
Senior Anna Brakke led all Cobber players over the weekend. She had team-highs in kills (30) and digs (46). Fellow senior Kendra Wiggs had 29 kills and six blocks.
