Minnesota State University Moorhead head soccer coach Christie Kopietz has announced the signing of nine recruits for the 2018 season.

Bothell resident Kayleigh Sedlacek, who attends Henry M. Jackson High School, is among those who signed. The student-athletes selected will continue their academic and athletic careers at MSUM this fall.

“The class is very strong, with each player possessing a special attribute that sets them apart,” Kopietz said in a press release. “My current team is working very hard this offseason and these incoming players will complement the group and help to move us forward.”

Sedlacek earned all-state first team honors as a senior. She has also been part of four conference championship teams, three of which made it to state.

She has additionally played for the Crossfire Premier club team since 2014.

“Kayleigh is very strong with her feet, which is such an added benefit in a goalkeeper,” Kopietz said in a press release. “She comes from a very high-level club and training environment, which will help her with the unique rigors of competing for playing time. She brings some stability and depth to the position as we only have one goalkeeper on roster this spring.”
