Four Penn State Women’s Soccer Stars Called Up To U-23 National Team

Update, March 3: Penn State women’s soccer star Cori Dyke will join three of her teammates on the U.S. U-23 Women’s Youth National Team’s spring roster. She fills in after a handful of previously announced selections couldn’t attend.

Dyke, a junior midfielder, has started and played in 58 games across her Nittany Lions career.

Original Story: Penn State women’s soccer standouts Kate Wiesner, Ally Schlegel, and Payton Linnehan will represent the U.S. U-23 Women’s Youth National Team for its spring slate of games.

With three representatives, Penn State is tied for the most players on the roster with Virginia and dominates Big Ten call-ups. The only other Big Ten player to receive an invitation was Rutgers goalkeeper Meagan McClelland.

Wiesner, Schlegel, and Linnehan have each made several appearances with the youth national team before and were all featured on the U-15 team together. Wiesner was most recently rostered at the U-23 Preseason Training Camp in January, among other call-ups throughout the years.

Schlegel has been rostered with the youth national team four times and was recognized as the captain of the U-18 U.S. women’s team.

Linnehan has represented the U-15 and U-17 youth national teams and earned the Golden Boot award at the 2016 Confederation of North, Central America, and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) Championship. The Massachusetts native spent much of the fall 2021 season nursing an injury but returned to represent the Nittany Lions in their postseason run.

Wiesner, Schlegel, and Linnehan will participate in the Thorns Preseason Tournament in which the youth team will face three NWSL teams from Providence Park in Portland, Oregon. The Nittany Lions and the U-23 squad will challenge the Chicago Red Stars, Portland Thorns FC, and OL Reign over the course of a week. The full tournament schedule and roster are available online.
