Standout forward Jesper Van Halderen has signed to continue his collegiate soccer career with the Kansas City Roos of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

For the 2022-2023 season, Van Halderen led Region IX with 15 goals and 11 assists. He was also a captain and leader for the Casper College Thunderbirds for the season. Van Halderen played for the T-Birds for three seasons and was named to the All-Region IX First Team.

The NCAA Division I Roos play in the Summit League and are coached by former professional soccer player Ryan Pore. The team will welcome Van Halderen in January 2023 to its roster. The Roos ended the year with a record of 7-5-5.

“Jesper has been a key player for us since we started the program. Coming off an injury in the 2021 season, he was motivated and focused on this year’s season. By staying healthy, he was able to lead our attack. It has been a pleasure coaching him, and we look forward to watching his future success,” said Soccer Head Coach Ben McArthur.
