Posted: February 14, 2013

HOWELL –Caitlyn Grigg, a senior from Henry Ford II High School, has signed a letter of intent to play for the Cleary University women’s soccer team.

"Caitlyn will be a huge asset to the Cougars starting this fall,” said Droo Callahan, women’s soccer coach at Cleary Univesity. “I look for her to play a pivotal part both offensively and defensively with the team this spring. Caitlyn is quiet but her physical play certainly sends a strong message."

"I feel Cleary’s soccer program offers me a great opportunity and will help me reach my full potential,” said Grigg, an outside midfielder and forward.

Grigg has played for numerous club teams in Michigan, including the Gators Soccer Club, Waza Football Club and Legacy Football Club. She also received the Gladiators ACES award for excellence during the High School Fallen Hero game.

Grigg is an honor roll student and a member of the National Art Honor Society.

“I feel Cleary is a good fit for me academically. It also has small class sizes and a friendly atmosphere,” Grigg said.

Cleary University reintroduced its collegiate athletic program in 2011 when it formed teams for men’s and women’s golf and cross country. Golf and cross country competed in 2012. Men’s and women’s soccer teams are scheduled to compete in 2013. Cleary is a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA).
