Reggae Girlz midfielder Kiki Van Zanten will get to showcase her talent in this season’s NWSL after being selected by the Houston Dash 21st overall at the NWSL College Draft on Saturday.

Houston traded $120,000 in allocation money to Utah Royals FC in exchange for the No. 21 overall pick and selected Van Zanten.

The midfielder scored 27 goals and tallied nine assists in 95 appearances for the Fighting Irish.

She helped Notre Dame reach the NCAA tournament four times and reached the semifinals of the ACC Women’s Soccer Tournament in 2022. 

Internationally, Van Zanten made her debut for the Reggae Girlz against Bermuda in a CONCACAF Women’s World Cup Qualifier in February 2022.

Van Zanten was also a member of Jamaica’s history-making squad at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

In total, she has one goal in nine appearances for Jamaica.
