Meredith Haakenson Enjoys Soccer Homecoming
Meredith Haakenson called it the cherry on the top.
In her fifth and final season playing soccer at the University of Michigan, the Maple Grove native took the field in her home state when the Wolverines visited the Gophers.
With a large contingent of family and friends watching, Haakenson scored on a header to lead the Wolverines to a 1-0 victory.
Haakenson is a graduate student at Michigan and says after earning her masters’ degree in Business Management she might explore opportunities to play professional soccer.
