Iowa State's Jenny Dominguez led the Big 12 with 14 goals, after pacing the Menace with seven goals last summer.
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2012 – A successful 2012 college season followed a championship season for several members of the inaugural Des Moines Menace women’s team.
Iowa State’s Jenny Dominguez headlines the list. The points leader for the 2012 Women’s League Soccer champion Menace, Dominguez continued her scoring tirade with the Cyclones, delivering a Big 12-leading 14 goals (20th nationally). The junior’s highest honors came from College Sports Madness, which named her the conference’s offensive player of the year and placed Dominguez on the all-America second team.
Dominguez is one of 14 Menace WLS alums who received 2012 postseason honors.
Next week, we will announce the 2012 honor roll for the Menace’s Premier Development League alumni.
