FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (Via University of Arkansas) — The University of Arkansas women’s soccer team and head coach Colby Hale announced the addition of All-Big 12 and All-Region transfer goalkeeper Katie Lund on Wednesday.

Lund was a First Team All-Big 12 and Second Team All-Region player in 2017 and comes to Arkansas after spending her last three seasons at TCU. She also was named the Big 12 Championships Defensive Most Outstanding Player and First Team Academic All-Big 12 as a sophomore.

“We are excited to add someone with Katie’s experience and accolades to our team,” Hale said. “Our goalkeeper group will be very competitive going into 2019.”

Lund was a starter all three years she spent with the Horned Frogs and has notched a combined 36 starts in 50 games with a 0.87 goals against average. One of Lund’s strongest years came in 2017 as she started 19 matches and helped TCU tie a school-record with eight shutouts, seven of which were solo efforts.

Lund led the Big 12 with an .835 save percentage that year and ranked second in the league with a 0.65 goals against average. She also made 66 total saves on the year to rank fifth in the conference as she guided TCU to the Big 12 conference tournament championship game and the 2017 NCAA Tournament.

Before college, Lund was part of a premier club program as she played for the 97 Dallas Sting under head coach Tatu. She helped lead her team to the 2014 ECNL National Championship and placed third at the 2013 ECNL National Championships.

In high school, Lund was a four-year varsity letter winner at Ursuline Academy of Dallas and helped lead her team to the TAPPS Div. 1 Championship in 2012, 2013 and 2014, as well as was a member of the 2014 TAPPS All-State Tournament Team and the TAPPS All-State Team in 2013 and 2014.
