Washington Spirit trades Mewis to Chicago for 2018 NWSL College Draft first round pick

Boyds, MD (August 21, 2017) – The Washington Spirit has acquired a conditional first-round pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft from the Chicago Red Stars in exchange for midfielder Kristie Mewis.

The Spirit will receive the higher pick of the two first-round selections that Chicago currently holds in the upcoming draft. The Red Stars hold Seattle Reign FC’s pick as well as their own natural position in the first round.

Mewis, 26, was traded to the Spirit from the Boston Breakers during the 2016 offseason. She appeared in 14 games, including 10 starts this season with Washington, scoring two goals and recording one assist.

“We want to thank Kristie for all she’s done for the club this year,” said Spirit head coach and general manager Jim Gabarra. “She’s made several strong contributions to help our team this season. We wish her all the best in Chicago.”

The Spirit will play two home games in a span of four days, starting on August 26 with a match-up against the Chicago Red Stars. On August 30, Washington will host the North Carolina Courage for a midweek game at the Maryland SoccerPlex.

Good morning!

Submitted at 131.2 this AM which is two pounds lower than my official goal and two pounds higher than my unofficial goal. (Feeling good! Will be back in the twenties for the next one) I thought confirmation was round the clock and am irritated that it appears ben ordered pizza last night and I can’t eat a slice right now. Also nervous about fluctuations before I get confirmed. Surely this wait won’t last, like, all day and night????

Edited to include: my weight has been verified! It took them about three hours. (unfortunately/fortunately I slept through those three hours and my weight went down to 130!!! so unofficially 1 pound away from my goal, which I am THRILLED about. it’s just not on the books or whatever.) Time for pizza! Good luck everybody!!!

Sakka Meme: My relation with real sakka!

So @inazuma-eleven-lover created this meme and I, honestly, am super hyped to talk about me and soccer xD

Okay… So, although I’m not a super fan of sakka, I must say I really enjoy playing it.

I remember next year, when my class played football in P.E…

All the boys were so good, but I still managed to dribble some of them a few times. If I’m not mistaken, I scored two goals in that match lmao, but one of them was SOOOOOO lame (it got inside by miracle)… I think I’d play as a midfielder or defense rather than a forward.

Anyways, my teacher didn’t expect me to be that good, she even told me about her being really surprised xDD (I’m a loser at this subject 😂😂😂)

But I remember being as exhausted as to collapse… I enjoyed it but, bc I’m not a sports person, I suffered when we finished.

This year was different, though… I couldn’t even touch a freaking ball just because my classmates play really dirty and are too rough… I WAS REALLY HYPED UP TO PLAY SOCCER BUT THEY RUINED EVERYTHING ;^; That wasn’t sakka indeed… I felt Tenma’s pain :‘v

Well, I think I’ve explained too much about me playing sakka…


As for watching it, I’m not constantly watching matches, but I like watching the ‘Clásicos’ (along with my father and the family, sometimes) and those where Real Madrid plays. Spain is a country where soccer is part of people’s lives, so… Everything here is football!

A paradise for Tenma hahahahah

My favorite players are Marcelo (Casemiro is a great player too) and, maybe, Asensio (he’s like Toramaru lmao young and very promising).

I’ve been watching three matches in a row, since the ‘Clásico’, and those players are fucking high quality omg. They play so well ;^;

Hope you liked it! Idk if I did a good job with this 😅 I didn’t have many references in order to do it perfectly.

I tag:
