Chicago, Ill. (April 4, 2022) – Today the Chicago Red Stars announced the signing of Amanda Kowalski to a three-year contract with a fourth-year option.
The Arlington Heights, Ill. native joined the Red Stars this preseason as a non-roster invitee out of Butler University. While at Butler, Kowalski played in 72 matches, starting in 46, scored four goals and assisted on 11 others. The defender also was named BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Week and BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll multiple times throughout her collegiate career.
Kowalski’s signing was made following the injury to Tierna Davidson announced last week. The defender earned her first start with the Red Stars Saturday, April 2, against the Houston Dash. In the match, Kowalski played all 90 minutes and completed 80 percent of her passes, making her one of the top five players in completed passes (44) for the Red Stars. Kowalski also made two key stops to help the team earn a clean sheet.
