Friday, July 8, 2011 Chicago Red Stars welcome Weissenhofer home

Michele Weissenhofer -- Chicago Red Stars
By Paul Johnson

Neuqua Valley graduate Michele Weissenhofer has seen soccer take her around the country and around the globe, since leaving the Wildcats in 2005.

Weissenhofer starred at Notre Dame for four years, spent time with the U.S. U-21 national team and even played soccer professionally in Germany.

Now Weissenhofer is back home, playing with the Chicago Red Stars of the Women’s Premier Soccer League. Weissenhofer and the Red Stars play the second of two dates at Benedictine University in Lisle on Sunday at 6 p.m. against the Minnesota Kings FC.

“It’s been really fun, actually,” Weissenhofer said. “We have a great bunch of girls on the team. I think that’s a lot of it. I think everyone gets along well. We have some older players and some young players, but we mesh really well still. We just continue to get better.”
