Mussell, Fleming cited by Omaha World-Herald
Sophomore forward Rachel Mussell claimed another honor on Tuesday as the Omaha World-Herald named her to its All-Nebraska soccer team. The native of Buffalo, Minn., also earned first team all-GPAC and Capital One Academic All-District 6 recognition. Junior midfielder Emily Fleming was awarded honorable mention status by the Omaha World-Herald.
Mussell finished second in the GPAC in 2012 with 14 goals. She broke out in her second season at Concordia with at least one goal in 10 of the team’s 16 games, including a hat trick in a loss to Nebraska-Kearney. Her 14 goals are the most in a single season by a Concordia women’s soccer player since Gentri Brown totaled 19 in 2006.
Fleming, a second team all-league choice, served as a force while primarily playing in the middle of the field throughout the 2012 season. Fleming tallied six assists (third most in the GPAC) and one goal. She also joined Mussell as one of six Bulldogs to start all 16 games.
