Rachel Bergman in goal

R

achel Bergman won a gold
medal last summer playing for
the U.S. women's soccer team
in the 13th European Maccabi Games in
Vienna, Austria.
This summer is just
as exciting.
The recent Detroit
Country Day School
graduate has begun
what she hopes will
be a successful career
as a goalie with
the Northwestern
Rachel
University women's
Bergman
soccer team in
Evanston, Ill.
"I'd love to play this season, of course,
but there are three other goalies on the
team, and two have played at the colle-
giate level," she said.
Bergman is the only freshman on
Northwestern's goalie crew. Returning
starter Anna Cassell is a sophomore.
But there's a new coach at
Northwestern, and that could benefit
Bergman. Michael Moynihan, who
turned the University of Wisconsin-
Milwaukee program into a powerhouse
during his 15 years as coach there, was
hired in December.
And the Northwestern Wildcats
didn't exactly set the women's soccer
world on fire last season. They finished
2-16-1 overall and 1-9-1 in the Big Ten
Conference, in last place.
Northwestern will play three straight
games on the road — Aug. 19 vs.
Kansas, Aug. 24 vs. Miami (Ohio) and
Aug. 26 vs. Dayton — before its home
opener Aug. 31 vs. Marquette. The
Wildcats' Big Ten opener is home Sept.
14 vs. Nebraska.
Some Northwestern games are tele-
vised on the Big Ten Network. This
season's broadcast schedule hasn't been
released.
Bergman was considered one of the
top high school goalies in the state when
she played at Country Day. She started
for the Yellowjackets for three seasons

after transferring from Bloomfield Hills
Andover.
After advancing to the state semifi-
nals in 2011, Country Day was stunned
1-0 this season by Pontiac Notre Dame
Prep in the district finals.
"That was a tough loss, but it would
have been worse if I didn't have college
to look forward to," Bergman said.
Bergman played club soccer with the
Michigan Hawks and Vardar, helping
the Hawks win a state championship in
2009. She also participated in state and
region Olympic development programs.
The West Bloomfield resident chose
Northwestern not just for the opportu-
nity to play soccer at a Division I level.
She also found it a good fit academically.
Her career goal is to become a surgeon.
Country Day's tough academic stan-
dards were no match for Bergman, who
graduated magna cum laude with a 3.85
grade point average.
