SEWARD, Neb. – A trio of Bulldogs were named to the NAIA/NCAA Division II all-Nebraska team and another four garnered honorable mention selection, as awarded by the Omaha World-Herald on Thursday. Second team all-conference choices Maria Deeter, Chrissy Lind and Ashley Martin each represented Concordia women’s soccer on the all-Nebraska squad. The four honorable mention picks were Jeannelle Condame, Madison Hawkins, Jessica Skerston and Esther Soenksen.
The 2015 team MVP, Deeter has raked in postseason honors. The standout attacking midfielder was also tabbed a National Soccer Coaches Association of America All-Plains Region selection. Deeter, a Seward native, started all 21 games and recorded six goals and seven assists for a Bulldog squad that advanced to the GPAC title game for the second-straight year.
In goal, Lind turned in a solid junior season in which she topped the conference in goals against average (0.75) while notching eight shutouts (program record 21 for career). The native of Colorado Springs made 91 saves and had a .754 save percentage.
Martin, a freshman from Longmont, Colo., also started all 21 games and added three goals and an assist from her outside back position. Lind and Martin were key figures for a unit that broke the program record for fewest goals allowed in a single season (16) during a 13-6-2 campaign.
