MANHATTAN, Kan. -- K-State women's soccer head coach Mike Dibbini announced the additions of a pair of transfer student-athletes, as forward/midfielder Kimberly Braddock and defender Hali Sutter will join the inaugural Wildcat roster.

Braddock and Sutter are the fifth and sixth members of the K-State women's soccer roster, joining forwards Krista Haddock and Elizabeth Hernandez, goalkeeper Miranda Larkin and midfielder Madison Wedekind. The Wildcats' first season of competition is set for the fall of 2016.

Braddock joins the Wildcats following one season at Cal State Fullerton in 2014. The forward from Simi Valley, California, played in 13 matches as a substitute as she helped the Titans win the 2014 Big West Conference regular season and tournament titles and make an appearance in the 2014 NCAA Tournament.

"We are very excited to have Kim Braddock join our program," said Dibbini. "She brings an attacking mind to the program and will be competing from the start. She also comes from a very competitive environment. Lastly, she was part of a championship team at Cal State Fullerton and played at a very high level. The experience and leadership she can bring to the team is going to be very important in our young program."

Prior to joining Cal State Fullerton, Braddock was a four-year letter winner for head coach Kevin Corley at Royal High School in Simi Valley. Following her senior season, Braddock was named to the All-Marmonte League First Team.

Sutter joins K-State following one season at Memphis in 2014. The defender from Overland Park, Kansas, played in seven games including three starts with 335 total minutes of play.

"We are extremely excited to have Hali join our back line and bring her experience as a solid defender," stated Dibbini. "She comes from a competitive program and will also add experience to our young team. Hali is a very athletic defender and great shutdown 1v1 defender."

Prior to joining the Tigers, Sutter was a three-time state champion at Blue Valley Northwest High School. During her time with the Huskies, Sutter was a two-time Defensive Player of the Year recipient in the Eastern Kansas League (EKL), a three-time All-State 6A selection and a three-time All-EKL First Team honoree. She also garnered four state championships at the club level with the Kansas City Football Club.
