Can we go ahead and give Mike Dibbini an extension?

All eyes were on the US national team as it won another World Cup title in France this summer, and we strongly recommend watching those players in the National Women’s Soccer League. But if you want to go experience high-level women’s soccer and a fun atmosphere, head to the brand new Buser Family Park this fall.

Fourth-year coach Mike Dibbini joins this week’s podcast to discuss a diverse roster, which includes British sophomore Chloe Fisher and three other European players. It also features the first three players to spend four years in the young program, notably senior captains Laramie Hall and Katie Cramer. Dibbini expects K-State to bring more experience and a team better prepared to compete in perhaps the nation’s best soccer conference.

Listen to the end and you’ll be able to hear Coach Dibbini’s praise of football coach Chris Klieman. Hopefully the teams will work together again to make it possible to see both play during a weekend trip. K-State soccer opens its regular season Aug. 23 at Creighton and the home opener is August 29 against Arkansas State, two days before the football team hosts Nicholls State.

The ‘Cats play at home on Sundays after home football games against Nicholls and the Oct. 26 game against Oklahoma. If you can’t get out to either of those, Kansas State has seven other home soccer games as it seeks to earn its first trip to the Big 12 tournament.
