Jackrabbit soccer announced Wednesday the addition of graduate transfer Adalaide Kline for the 2019 season. Kline spent the last three seasons at Oklahoma State University and will be immediately eligible at South Dakota State.
“We’re excited to add an experienced defender to our roster for 2019,” head coach Brock Thompson said. “More than that, however, Adalaide’s time on campus showed she’s a great fit for our team culture and core values.”
Oklahoma State went 35-20-7 with a pair of NCAA Tournament berths during Kline’s tenure with the Cowgirls. As a defensive unit, OSU held opponents to 1.06 goals per game (15 shots per contest) in 2019.
Kline graduated in three years as a double-major in animal science and business, posting a 3.615 grade point average while earning her degree.
The Mission Hills, Kansas native was a two-time All-State performer at Shawnee Mission East High School, graduating in 2016 with a pair of league championships. She also played club soccer with Sporting Blue Valley Aztecs (2013-15) and ECNL Sporting Blue Valley (2011).
