Podcast: E025 – Katie McClure

Katie McClure was born to score goals. So it’s no surprise she was drafted by the Washington Spirit of the National Women’s Soccer League after a record-setting Kansas career. A Wichita native, McClure has always craved competition—it’s how she grew up as the daughter of a former pro baseball player with three older siblings. And that competitive fire has led to her coming up big when it matters most: Her 18 game-winning goals are the most in Jayhawk history. As a senior, she helped lead the Jayhawks to their first-ever Big 12 Tournament title, and a second-round hat trick in the NCAA Tournament propelled KU to the Sweet 16. What led to Katie McClure becoming one of the best players in Jayhawk program history? And how has her success in college put her in position to live out a life-long dream of playing at the highest level?
