The Iowa soccer team gained a new member in Natalie Krygier, a transfer from Connecticut, Hawkeye head coach Dave Dilanni announced on Monday.

The transfer played six games as a true freshman, posting an overall team record of 11-9 in the American Athletic Conference in 2013.

“I have known her for many years, coaching her in the Michigan Olympic Development program,” Dilanni said in a release. “Even back then, you could see Natalie was highly competitive and fought for everything she got by improving each and every day at training.

“She will begin her career along the back line or holding mid position. She helps us add experienced depth to a team with high expectations this year.” 

Dilanni was named head coach in June after former Hawkeye soccer coach Ron Rainey left for Dartmouth in the spring. Dilanni was previously head coach for 11 seasons at Grand Valley State, finishing with a 221-18-18 record.

Iowa begins its regular season on Aug. 22 against Northern Iowa.
