Women’s soccer ties for fifth in GPAC preseason poll

GPAC release

SEWARD, Neb. – Second-year head coach Greg Henson’s Bulldogs collected 55 points to tie for fifth in the GPAC women’s soccer preseason coaches’ poll, released Tuesday by the league. Last season Concordia placed seventh after posting an overall mark of 9-9-2 and GPAC record of 5-5 (15 points) in Henson’s first season at the helm.

While the Bulldogs graduated key players in midfielder Jordan Donohoue and defender Emily Fleming, they have a wealth of experience returning, including a long list of key senior contributors. That list features defender Rachel Mussell, midfielders Katrina Muther and Marcie Sindt and forwards Ashlie Sklenicka and Melissa Stine.

“We have a good, strong returning class coming back,” Henson said. “From our senior class to juniors and sophomores – there are a lot of players who played vital minutes for us last year. Knowing them and what they’re capable of – strengths, weaknesses and all those things and also just knowing the conference (will help).”

More details on the 2014 Concordia women’s soccer team will be available in our soon-to-come season preview.
