Lakota West Firebirds

    Brigit Reder

    Contact Coach Reder:

    Brigit became the Lakota West Varsity head coach in 2016, and we have since seen two seasons of consistent improvement in the team’s won/lost record, city ranking, and tournament advancement. The 2016 assignment was her first as a soccer coach, but her background included a wealth of soccer playing experience at the high school, college, and professional levels. She also built on two years of experience as the Lakota West junior varsity girls basketball coach. Basketball was also a sport she excelled at while a student at West played on a Firebird team that reached the Ohio D-1 State Final 4.

    Brigit was an all-GMC second-team soccer player as a Firebird sophomore, and then following a junior season hampered by injury, came back to be named All-GMC first team as a senior.

    As a collegian, she was a four-year varsity starter at Ball State University, where she set the Cardinals school record for minutes played in a career. From her defender position at BSU, Reder still scored 11 goals in her collegiate career, including a hat trick against Lamar University in 2011. She graduated from Ball State with academic honors and a BS degree in Special Education.

    Upon leaving Ball State, Brigit went on to play professional soccer for the Seattle Sounders FC, the Western New York Flash, and finally, two seasons for Ostersund DFF in Ostersund, Sweden.
