In just his first season heading the Oregon Tech women's soccer program, Mike Hedlund led a young squad to a 7-6-2 overall record and enters his second season with high hopes when the Owls take the pitch in 2013. Picked in the preseason coaches' poll to finish in 7th place last year, the Lady Owls survived a tough pre-season schedule to finish tied for 3rd in Cascade Conference action with a 5-2-2 mark, earning a spot in the 2012 CCC Championship Tournament for the first time since 2009.
Hedlund has been with both the men’s and women’s programs at Oregon Tech, spending three seasons as an assistant coach with the main focus on goal keeper duties prior to taking over head coaching duties in 2012.
A Klamath Union High School graduate, Hedlund played club soccer at the University of Oregon, graduating in 1992 with a degree in business. Hedlund was also a Willamette College of Law graduate (1997). Along with his assistant coaching duties at Oregon Tech, Hedlund previously served as an assistant to both the boys and girls soccer teams at KUHS and has coached soccer for Basin United teams in Klamath Falls.
