CSU soccer adds Creighton transfer for 2020 season

Coming off the most productive season in program history, the Colorado State University soccer team announced that a new transfer, Haylee Blach, will join CSU in 2020.

In 2019, the Rams earned a record of 12-5-3 and made their first appearance in the Mountain West Championship.


Blach, who will play on defense for CSU, went to Regis Jesuit High School and is from Centennial, Colorado. She is a graduate transfer from Creighton, where she received a degree in advertising and public relations.

Creighton has been good to CSU when it comes to transfers. Caeley Lordemann, the all-time leading goal scorer for the Rams, attended Creighton before transferring to CSU. Lordemann and Blach spent their freshman season together as Bluejays. Lordemann and Blach, along with former Ram Maddie Kessler, previously played club ball together as well.

“Haylee will add four years of college experience to our program,” coach Bill Hempen said. “She is quite athletic and can play midfielder or defender. I have known Haylee for a while before she went off to Creighton, as she is a Colorado native. She is a gem of an individual and will fit well with the group we have for 2020.”

Blach started 20 total matches in her Bluejays tenure. She dealt with her fair share of injuries but produced some solid numbers as well. Her most successful individual season was 2017, a year in which she started 14 of 16 games en route to 1,219 minutes and two assists.
