Women’s Soccer’s Sankoh Selected First Team All-SSC

Boca Raton, Fla. – Lynn University women's soccer's Anniina Sankoh has been selected First Team All-Sunshine State Conference (SSC), as announced on Wednesday afternoon. 

The sophomore forward from Helsinki, Finland led the SSC in nearly all the major offensive categories, ranking first in shots (81), points (43) and goals (19). Nine of those goals came in conference play, highlighted by a three-goal performance in Lynn's must-win matchup in the final regular season game against Florida Tech.

A transfer from American International College, Sankoh also earned First Team All-Conference recognition last season at AIC from the NE10. Additionally, she was named to the United Soccer Coaches All-Region Third Team in 2018.

Sankoh's First Team honor is the first for the Fighting Knights since 2017 when Donish Henry-Cole earned the same accolade. Her 19 goals are the most by a member of the Blue and White since Jannie Nicolaisen netted 26 goals in 1998.

Lynn's season came to a close on Monday, Nov. 11 with a 1-0 loss to Nova Southeastern in the SSC Quarterfinals, the team's first postseason appearance since 2012.
