SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Augustana continued its struggles with Concordia-St. Paul and lost to the second-ranked Golden Bears in straight sets 25-19, 25-18, 25-23.  The Vikings overall record falls to 16-9, 10-6 in Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference action and CU improves to 20-3 on the season, 14-2 in NSIC competition.
