Penn State Women’s Soccer Adds Swiss Forward Kim Dubs

Penn State women’s soccer made a late addition to its 2018 recruiting class in Swiss forward Kim Dubs, who will join the team for preseason camp and be eligible immediately.

The Zürich native bolsters an already strong freshman class that also features Katherine Asman, Kelli Beiler, Caitlin Haislip, Maddie Myers, Ally Schlegel, and Rachel Wasserman.

Head coach Erica Dambach had some extra room on her roster after rising junior midfielder Laura Freigang signed a pro contract with Germany’s 1. FFC Frankfurt in June.

Last year’s starting goalkeeper Rose Chandler is no longer listed on the roster either, though it’s currently unclear whether she’s transferring or pursuing a professional opportunity. Junior Amanda Dennis is likely to fill the vacancy.

Penn State led the Big Ten in both shots (360) and goals (44) last season.

Dubs has been a regular contributor on Switzerland’s youth national teams, most recently representing her country at the 2017 UEFA European Women’s U-19 Qualifiers. She played club soccer for BSC Young Boys Switzerland.

“We are incredibly excited to add Kim to our 2018 class,” Dambach said in a release. “She is a really talented player who will bring a wealth of international experience and savvy.”

Dubs, who will wear No. 24, and redshirt junior Kristin Schnurr are the only true forwards on this year’s team. Versatile players like Casey Ballow and Frankie Tagliaferri are capable of attacking the net or falling back into the midfield.

Dubs and her new teammates will get the regular season underway on Friday, Aug. 17 when the Nittany Lions host West Virginia at 7:30 p.m. at Jeffrey Field.
