Five Bulldogs represent Concordia women’s soccer on OWH list

Article from Omaha World-Herald

SEWARD, Neb. – Concordia senior Jordan Donohoue has been chosen as a 2013 Omaha World-Herald NAIA/NCAA Division II All-Nebraska Women’s Soccer selection, as announced on Christmas day. In addition, Emily Fleming, Rachel Mussell, Ashlie Sklenicka and Melissa Stine were placed on the honorable mention list.

All five honorees also received some form of recognition on the GPAC all-conference teams.

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.
