Huskies add two players to soccer team

HOUGHTON — Michigan Tech soccer coach Michelle Jacob today announced the addition of two student-athletes to her roster for the 2015 season. Emma Davidson (New London, Wis.) and Andrea Zubke (New Berlin, Wis.) have both signed National Letters of Intent to play soccer and attend Michigan Tech beginning next fall.

Davidson has played as a goalkeeper at New London High School, where she earned Bay Conference honors each of her last two seasons. She has also played in the field for Appleton Soccer Club and FC Central out of Stevens Point, Wis. Davidson plans to study computer engineering.

“Emma’s quickness, athleticism and courage in goal have helped her play at a high level,” said Jacob, who completed her fifth season as Tech’s soccer coach this past fall. “She’ll be a versatile asset for us as we’ve seen her step out goal and use her speed and aggressiveness in the field. Emma will be a great addition to our program.”

Zubke plays at New Berlin Eisenhower High School, where she earned All-Woodland Conference Second Team as a junior last spring after recording 13 goals and nine assists. The midfielder helped the Lions to a regional championship and sectional final. She also played for Red Star Soccer Club in Kenosha, Wis. Zubke plans to major in civil engineering.

“Andrea is a speedy, two-footed player who has helped her teams in multiple positions,” said Jacob. “We like her in the middle of the field, where she will have the ability to surge forward to score and recover hard on defense. She’s also shown excellent leadership skills. We’re really looking forward to Andrea joining us this fall.”

Michigan Tech had three seniors on this past year’s team, which went 11-5-2 and earned a berth into the NCAA Tournament.
