Donohoue, Sklenicka highlight Bulldog women’s soccer all-conference picks

GPAC Release

SEWARD, Neb. – A stellar senior season has placed Concordia’s Jordan Donohoue on the league’s first team all-conference list, as announced by the GPAC on Monday. Donohoue is joined by junior Ashlie Sklenicka as an all-conference selection. Sklenicka was a second-team choice. Meanwhile, senior Emily Fleming and juniors Rachel Mussell and Melissa Stine received honorable mention.

While she did not accumulate a lot of statistics, Donohoue thrived in any role head coach Greg Henson placed her in. The native of Manhattan, Kan., played all over the field throughout the season in serving as a virtual Swiss army knife. She tallied two goals and two assists, but her biggest contributions did not show up in the stats. The Bulldogs made a late-season run to the GPAC semifinals after Donohoue moved to the back line. In her four seasons, Donohoue missed only one of a possible 73 games.

Sklenicka, who hails from Lincoln, served as one of the team’s most active and productive strikers. She broke out in 2013 with a career best seven goals. Sklenicka started all 20 games at forward and hoisted 48 shots.

Fleming and Mussell also started all 20 games. Mussell (Buffalo, Minn.) led the Bulldogs in goals for the second-straight year, finding the back of the net nine times in 2013. Fleming (Gretna, Neb.) anchored the back line all season and added a goal and an assist. Meanwhile, Stine (Omaha, Neb.) played in 19 games and registered three goals and one assist.

Last season Mussell was a first team choice while Fleming garnered second team honors. Donohoue earned honorable mention status.
