Hokies add women’s soccer transfer

Kendall Feighan is transferring to Virginia Tech after a year off from soccer.

 

 

 

Virginia Tech women’s soccer head coach Charles “Chugger” Adair has announced that 5-foot-3 midfielder Kendall Feighan has transferred to Blacksburg after taking the 2019 season off. 


Feighan
is from Pleasant Valley, N.Y. She earned varsity letters all four years of high school playing for Arlington High School. As a senior, she led the Admirals to their third straight Section 1 championship and was named the Class AA New York girls soccer co-Player of the Year and a first team all-state, all-section and all-league performer. 


“We’re excited to have Kendall join us for the fall,” Adair said. “We know her work rate, her soccer ability and her personality are going to impact the team right off the bat. She has a great workman-like mentality that will fit into our team, and we’ll expect her to work for her opportunities and push for a starting spot or significant minutes.” 


Feighan registered just 10 assists and eight goals as a senior at Arlingto
n, but she had shifted from her more familiar position, outside midfield, to center midfield for her final year to help the team control the ball more and anchor the defense. The team went undefeated in the regular season and reached the state’s regional semifinals. The Admirals were 20-1 and advanced to the state quarterfinals in 2017 after winning the state title the year before. As a sophomore in 2016, Feighan scored the game-tying goal in Arlington’s NY Class AA state title victory, a double overtime win against three-time defending champion Massapequa. 


Feighan
played three years of Unified basketball at Arlington High School to go with her soccer experience. Unified basketball is a competitive varsity sport organized by the New York State Public High School Athletic Association in which special needs athletes are paired with volunteer general education students on co-ed teams and play games against other high schools. Feighan served as a player/coach under the direction of Richard Dima.


She attended the University of Georgia last year but did not play for the Bulldogs. She is the younger sister of Virginia Tech rising
junior Molly Feighan.
