CUW’s Olla wins National Award

The NCAA has informed CUW that Falcon outfielder Jon Olla is the National 2009 statistical champion for on base percentage. Olla, a junior, will receive two plaques; one for himself and one to be proudly displayed in the Concordia trophy case. "Jon works very hard and has a great approach at the plate," complimented head coach Val Keiper. "He is disciplined, not looking for the long ball first even though he is a powerful guy. His first priority is to be a base runner and that really helped our offense become more effective this season."
