Defenders Third In All-Sports Trophy Race

(Friday, May 13; Sioux Center, Iowa) The 2021-22 Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) athletic season is complete and Dordt finished third in the race for the GPAC All-Sports Champion.  

Dordt earned 63.5 percent of its available points in a formula that takes into account each women’s and men’s team finish in the conference sponsored sports.  Dordt’s women finished third in the women’s standings and the men finished fifth. The third-place overall finish is the best for Dordt since the GPAC was formed. 

“When this academic year began, I thought the entire athletic department was primed for a year to remember, and it was. It was a joy to watch our teams compete well as the GPAC season unfolded and I appreciate so much our coaches’ intentional efforts to train and care for the whole individual.  Our coaching staff has been outstanding in using athletics as part of the great commission, in training our athletes to be servant leaders, and in pushing athletes to develop to their fullest in their academic pursuits.  I am humbled to work with such a talented group of coaches,” said Dordt director of athletics Ross Douma.  

The GPAC All-Sports Trophy, a traveling trophy, is awarded annually to the school that finishes first in the final All-Sports standings.
