Concordia-St. Paul claims another National Championship

The Golden Bears will raise another banner.

For the eighth time in the last 10 years, the Concordia-St. Paul Golden Bears volleyball team are national champions.

The Golden Bears were top seed in the NCAA Division II tournament and defeated the University of Alaska Seawolves winning in straight sets, 25-19, 25-12 and 25-12.

Concordia posted a ridiculous .443 hitting percentage in the win.
