For the Reporter

The Seattle Impact FC has signed its first midfielder, Micah Wenzel.

The Impact are the newest members of the 23-team Major Arena Soccer League (MASL), the indoor game's top-tier division throughout North America

Born in Federal Way, Wenzel is a former Bellarmine Prep High School and University of Puget Sound star.

Wenzel played for indoor soccer teams in Tacoma from 2007 to 2013.

During his three-year stint with Tacoma's semi-pro team, Wenzel helped the Stars capture the 2010 national championship, notably scoring five goals in the five-game tournament along with posting a goal and an assist in the final game.

With the Tacoma Stars pro team from 2010 to 2012, Wenzel scored double-digit goals each season. In 2013, Wenzel was a member of the Tacoma Galaxy, where he served as team captain.

Wenzel is excited and determined to begin a new chapter in his career.

"This is an opportunity that many players in this area would relish and so I am going to do everything possible to make the most of this chance," Wenzel said. "There is a lot of quality in this area as far as indoor soccer players go so I can't wait to get everyone together and get on the same page as the season approaches."
