Prairie Stars find 'keeper in Kubal

Kelli Kubal isn’t bothered by an unexpected turn of events — she just goes with the flow.“Things don’t really bother me,” the University of Illinois Springfield sophomore goalkeeper said. “Plans change. It’s not a big deal to me.”

“She’s an upbeat kid,” UIS women’s soccer coach Pete Kowall said. “If you go to a restaurant she doesn’t like, she deals with it. If we don’t buy her the gloves she exactly likes, she deals with it. Last year, she didn’t like the soccer balls I bought, she dealt with it.”

Kubal's story was featured in a September 25, 2009 edition of the State Journal-Register.
