NWSL: Caroline Kastor announces retirement

Caroline Kastor is officially calling it a career.

The forward is only 25-years-old, but is ready to move on with the next stage of her life.

Kastor starred collegiality for the University of Kansas Jayhawks from 2010-13, where she made 80 appearances, scoring 26 goals. She stayed local going into her professional season, as FC Kansas City brought her on board right after her college graduation.

Since then, she has remained in an FC Kansas City uniform. She has made her debut in 2015, and finished that season with eight appearances. In 2015, FC Kansas City won their second-straight NWSL Championship.

In the 2016 season, Kastor made 15 appearances, in which she started three matches.

An American, she has never represented the United States on any level.

“I am so proud of the women who have contributed to the growth of the game and it has been an absolute honor to have been among those women,” Kastor said.

“Caroline was a big part of the team in the last two years,” said head coach Vlatko Andonovski. “She is a player that always brought different dynamics to our game. Replacing her and finding a player of her caliber will be something we are going to start to look for immediately. We want to wish Caroline all the best in her next stage in life.”
