Mayme (pronounced May-me) Conroy started every match at forward for the second consecutive season on her way to posting 11 goals and three assists on 26 shots on goal. Conroy was the Huskers' second-leading goal scorer and averaged more than 78 minutes per match.
Conroy posted the first two goals of the season-opening 4-0 victory over Southeast Missouri for the third multi-goal game of her career on Aug. 23. Jaycie Johnson's shot from the right side was deflected and landed in the path of a hustling Conroy who put it into the left side of the goal from close range less than three minutes into the match. Conroy later added a header in the early minutes of the second half off a corner kick from Samantha Areman.
In the first day of action at the Kansas Invitational against San Francisco, Conroy gave the Huskers momentum quickly, as the junior gathered a long cross from Stacy Bartels and finished off the tap in just 56 seconds into the contest for her third score on the year.
At Illinois on Sept. 29, Conroy scored twice in the second half, including the game-winner in the 61st minute for her 20th career score and fifth of the year, notching her fourth multi-goal game of her career.
The Omaha native produced the game-winning goal in the 46th minute on a point-blank header after a right-to-left crossing pass from Jordan Jackson, as Conroy put it in near post in the 4-0 road win at Purdue on Oct. 11. She also assisted on Katie Kraeutner's fifth score of the season for a three-point night.
Conroy notched another game-winning goal in the 25th minute against Ohio State. She scored the lone goal of the match when Kylie Greischar hooked up with the forward on a long pass from the right side to an awaiting Conroy who headed the ball up and over the OSU keeper from 15 yards out.
In the regular-season finale against Indiana, Conroy posted her eighth goal of the year in Nebraska's Big Ten title-clinching match in the 34th minute when she struck from 12 yards on an assist from Jackson.
As Nebraska battled throughout the postseason, Conroy scored a pair of goals for the third time in 2013 and sixth time in her career in NU's Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal win over Minnesota. Conroy scored the first goal on a tap-in off a cross from Greischar for the equalizer. Conroy then headed in a long cross from Jaylyn Odermann to cap the scoring in the 4-1 win.
Conroy capped the Nebraska season by scoring her 11th goal of the year and 26th career tally on a header after a crossing pass from Odermann from 30 yards out as the Huskers' season came to an end in the NCAA Tournament second round to Boston College.
Conroy had a breakout season for the Huskers on her way to earning second-team All-Big Ten honors in 2012. She led the Huskers with 14 goals, which ranked sixth in the Big Ten and tied for 23rd in the country.
Conroy scored her first goal of the season in the 2012 opener at Oklahoma, matching her goal total as a freshman in 2011. She added her second goal two games later in a 3-2 double-overtime loss to No. 16 Virginia Tech at home.
Conroy scored in back-to-back Husker wins against Southeast Missouri State at home and at Northwestern to open Big Ten play.
After being held scoreless in a 1-1 tie with Northern Colorado, Conroy scored at least one goal in each of the Huskers' next five games.

Conroy ended the regular season with a two-goal performance against Minnesota.
On the season, Conroy put 32 of her 60 shots on goal for a .533 shot-on goal percentage.
Conroy was one of two Huskers to earn All-Big Ten honors in 2012, as she and Ari Romero were both second-team picks.
Conroy played in 17 of the Huskers' 18 games as a true freshman, including starts against Iowa and Illinois late in the season. She led all Husker freshmen in points with five, and was one of three freshmen to score a goal on the year, joining Caroline Gray and Samantha Areman.
Conroy notched her first points as a Husker with a pair of assists against Northern Arizona on Sept. 4. She aided Areman in scoring her first career goal and added another assist less than three minutes later on a goal by Maddie Hanssler to put the Huskers up 8-0 in a game they won, 8-1.
Conroy and the Huskers nearly upset then No. 15 Penn State in Happy Valley on Oct. 14, but fell 5-4 in the contest. Conroy scored her first career goal late in the first half to put NU up 2-1, before the Nittany Lions scored three unanswered goals. The Huskers responded with back-to-back goals, but were unable to match PSU's fifth goal of the game at the 78:31 mark.
Conroy notched her third assist of the season in a 3-2 win at Ohio State on Oct. 16. The Huskers took a 2-1 lead early in the second half when Conroy and Stacy Bartels assisted on Morgan Marlborough's 17th goal of the season for the game-winning goal.
Conroy was one of the most dominant scorers in the state of Nebraska from 2007 to 2010. She scored 17 goals in 12 state tournament games, including the first goal in Omaha Skutt's 2-1 victory over Gretna in the 2011 Class B state championship game. With the win, the SkyHawks became the first team in Class B girls state soccer history to win three straight state titles.

In 2009, Conroy set a school season record with 27 goals, breaking the previous mark set by former prep and Husker teammate Stacy Bartels. For Conroy's efforts, the four-time all-state selection was named the honorary captain of the Omaha World-Herald's 2010 All-Nebraska soccer team.
In 2009, Conroy made her first of three Super-State teams, as she produced 23 goals and 15 assists en route to Omaha Skutt's state title.
