Concordia (St. Paul) swept Wheeling (W.Va.) Jesuit 25-11, 25-16, 25-12 on Friday night in the NCAA Division II volleyball national semifinals in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

With the victory, the Golden Bears (34-3) are just one victory away from their seventh consecutive championship. They will play BYU-Hawaii which beat West Texas A&M 25-20, 25-22, 19-25, 21-25, 15-11 in the other semifinal behind Shih ting Chen’s 21 kills. The Seasiders (29-1) also needed five sets — and Chen’s 37 kills — to win in the quarterfinals the day before.

Emily McDonough led Concordia, which hit a torrid .438 against Wheeling Jesuit, with 12 kills and 17 digs. Four teammates had 10 kills. The Cardinals (38-6) were making their first appearance in the final four.


5 Auggies in Mexico football game

Augsburg football coach Frank Haege will coach a team of American small-college all-stars, including three of his players, against a Mexican all-star team on Saturday in the Mexico City American Bowl.

The Auggies, all seniors, on American team are linebacker Enrico Barrozo, offensive lineman Chad Thompson and tight end Adam Carl. Also on team will be former Augsburg wide receiver Wesley Waytashek, a student assistant coach this past season.

This is the third consecutive year Haege has coached in this game — formerly called the Aztec Bowl — his team won 49-26 last year.
