On game days, Concordia goalie Andrea Klug usually finds herself looking down at teammate Amber Schaack’s feet. Klug knows Schaack will be wearing something unique. “Everything you can think of, she has a pair of socks for,” said Klug, a senior from West Fargo. Schaack said she started wearing “weird, random socks” near the end of last season with no repeats on game days. Her collection includes pairs that feature Princess Leia, hamburgers, flamingos, watermelons and superheroes.
