Fleming, Mussell earn CoSIDA Academic All-District honors

Concordia women’s soccer student-athletes Emily Fleming and Rachel Mussell have been named to the Capital One Academic All-District 6 team of the College Division. The College Division of District 6 encompasses the states of Kansas, Montana, Nebraska and South Dakota and includes a total of 12 honorees.

Nearly 4,000 student-athletes across all sports nationally receive All-District honors for their all-around accomplishments in the classroom, in the community and in competition. Student-athletes (sophomores through seniors) who have achieved cumulative grade-point averages above 3.5 and have performed at a high level on the playing field receive greatest consideration for the All-District teams.

Mussell, a sophomore from Buffalo, Minn., burst onto the scene in 2012 with 14 goals, a figure that placed her second in the GPAC. Her 14 goals are the most in a single season by a Concordia women’s soccer player since Gentri Brown totaled 19 in 2006. The secondary education major (emphasis  in chemistry and physics) is also a standout person and exemplary student.

Fleming, junior from Gretna, Neb., started all 16 games this season for the Bulldogs and was a key cog in the Concordia back line. She also made strong contributions offensively with one goal and a team-leading six assists. In addition, the biology and psychology (pre-med) major earns high marks in the classroom.

As Capital One Academic All-District 6 honorees, Mussell and Fleming will now be placed on the CoSIDA Academic All-America® ballot. Academic All-Americans will be announced at a later date.

*NOTE: Each district is separated into College Division, NCAA Division I, II and III teams.
