The Chicago Red Stars of the National Women’s Soccer League have become the first Chicago professional team to hire a female public address announcer.

Lindsay Eanet is a member of the team’s supporters section and the daughter of longtime Chicago sportscaster and Northwestern football play-by-play voice Dave Eanet. The Red Stars announced her hiring on Wednesday.

She graduated from the University of Missouri and earned a master’s degree from Liverpool Hope University.
