Nittany Lions add 5 on signing day
UNIVERSITY PARK Penn State women’s soccer officially added five new players to the program on Wednesday’s national signing day.
Three players — Katherine Asman, Caitlin Haislip and Ally Schlegel — have United States Women’s National Team experience at the youth level. Meanwhile, Maddie Myers and Rachel Wasserman were leaders for their club and high school teams, respectively.
“With the class of 2018, we add a tremendous amount of personality and talent,” head coach Erica Dambach said in a statement. “They are all great players but even better people and will fit seamlessly into the family culture we have built here at Penn State.”
Asman and Schlegel has experience with the USWNT at the U-14, U-16, U-17 and U-18 levels. Haislip was a member of the U-17 and U-18 teams.
Myers won the ECNL National Championship in 2014 and 2017 with the Michigan Hawks club team, and Wasserman recorded 73 goals and 61 assists with Highland Park High School in Dallas in 2017.
O’Donnell, Carter named preseason All-Americans
