Sycamore senior Kierah Meier was officially announced as a member of the NIU women's soccer team, the college announced Friday.

“We're excited to welcome the 2020 recruiting class to the family this fall,” NIU coach Julie Colhoff. “It's a big class and we believe that each one of them brings something special to the program. They've each been recruited to come in prepared so that they can immediately make an impact with their skill, athleticism and competitive mentality. We have big goals as a program and I'm really looking forward to this class joining forces with our current squad to achieve them.”

Meier scored 61 goals and tallied 35 assists in three seasons playing at Sycamore, winning three conference and regional championships (2017-19) with the Spartans. A two-time all-conference and two-time Daily Chronicle all-area honoree her last two years, the forward set a new school record with 31 goals for Sycamore during the 2019 season.

Meier was named to the Chicagoland Soccer All-State Watch List this spring and played club soccer with the Rockford Raptors.

Meier was one of 13 players signed by the Huskies on Friday.
