SEWARD, Neb. – In the midst of an offseason coaching change, Bulldog women’s soccer has been picked to finish seventh among the conference’s 11 members in the 2013 GPAC Women’s Soccer Preseason Coaches’ Poll. Concordia picked up 48 points in the poll.
First-year head coach Greg Henson inherits a Bulldog program that finished eighth in the league with a 4-5-1 conference record in 2012 under previous head coach Lisa White. Under White, Concordia placed in a tie for fourth in 2011 when it went 6-4 in league play.
The Bulldogs return all three players who earned all-conference recognition last season, including prolific goal scorer Rachel Mussell (first team) who tallied far and away a team high with 14 goals in 2012. Midfielder Emily Fleming (second team) and forward Jordan Donohoue (honorable mention) are also back.
Henson will debut as head coach on Aug. 28 when Bethel College (Kan.) invades Bulldog Stadium for a 6 p.m. kickoff.
