HOUGHTON, Mich. – The Michigan Tech soccer program and Head Coach Michelle Jacob are pleased to announce the addition of Keighley Blindauer for the 2019 season. Blindauer (Green Bay, Wisconsin) has signed a National Letter of Intent to continue her academic and athletic career at Tech.
"Keighley works incredibly hard on both sides of the ball," Coach Jacob said. "She offers us an option out wide with the ability to serve a ball that can be put home by teammates or she can cut inside and finish herself. She always finds a way to get back and help her team when the ball turns over. She has experience in multiple roles so she can help centrally as well.
"Keighley is physically strong with great speed. Her ability to hold on to the ball under pressure and either get herself free or find a team mate is excellent. She is a hard working player that never gives up on a ball or a play. These qualities are so important to competing in the GLIAC and I feel Keighley is prepared to do just that."
Blindauer is a forward who prepped at Notre Dame de la baie Academy where she helped lead her team to a pair of Regional Championships and a Division 3 State Championship. Blindauer posted seven goals and four assists this spring, recorded eight goals and four assists in 2018, and fired in four goals and dished out two assists in 2017. Blindauer also competed on the De Pere Select Club.
The Huskies wrapped up the 2018 campaign with an overall record of 10-6-1 and finished fourth in the GLIAC standings thanks to a conference mark of 5-4. Tech has now qualified for the post season for seven straight years and recorded double digit win totals for the fifth time in the nine-year history of the program.
