ANDERSON, Ind. — Bailey Dornbusch, a 2016 graduate of Troy High School, just completed her second year on the Anderson University women’s soccer team — and it was one to remember for the former Trojan and current Raven.
At Troy High School, Dornbusch ended her high school career as a two-year captain and receiving Most Outstanding Player honors her senior year along with being named first team All-Greater Western Ohio Conference and winning the GWOC Coaches Sportsmanship Award.
This year was a standout year for Dornbusch, as she started every game and logged the most minutes played on the team. As a center defensive back, Dornbusch scored her first collegiate goal in a game against St. Marys-of-the-Woods on Sept. 23, 2017. The next week, she was also named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week, anchoring a defensive line that defeated the Mount St. Joseph Lions on Sept. 30, 2017. Dornbusch held the HCAC leader in goals to zero shots in a Ravens victory.
During the end-of-year banquet ceremonies, Dornbusch was named Anderson’s Defensive Most Valuable Player, was named All-HCAC second team, and was also selected as a team captain for upcoming 2018 fall season. In addition, Anderson women’s soccer coach Jennifer Myhre received Coach of the Year for the conference.
