SEWARD, Neb. – No other women’s soccer program in the nation garnered more Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes than Concordia University’s hard-working group. Eleven Bulldogs, including four repeat honorees, were named scholar-athletes on Friday, as announced by the NAIA.

In order to be nominated by an institution’s head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.

Concordia women’s soccer players earning scholar-athlete recognition for the second-straight year were seniors Kayla Asche, Jordan Donohoue, Emily Fleming and Louisa Mehl.

Concordia ranks as the NAIA’s all-time leader in number of Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes with 942 and counting. During the 2012-13 academic year, Concordia had 71 Scholar-Athletes and 17 NAIA Scholar-Teams.

A total of 507 women’s soccer student-athletes across the nation were named scholar-athletes by the NAIA.
