Goalkeeper Brittany Cameron joined Sky Blue FC in Japan last spring.
The National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) held its 2013 Supplemental Draft on Thursday, with each NWSL club making free agent selections over six rounds. Each team submitted a list of 8-10 players to construct the list of players to be eligible for the draft. Domestic and international players were eligible for the Supplemental Draft, but each team was allowed only two international players, in addition to the international players that were previously distributed in the National Team Allocation.
Head Coach Jim Gabarra: “Going into this part of the roster building process, we looked to add some players who could really solidify some components for our team this season. We feel that we were able to do that by adding some young talent, as well as providing our team with some veteran experience.”
1st Round: Midfielder Katy Frierson, Auburn University
Frierson finished her collegiate career in the fall of 2011 as a four-time All-SEC First Team and two-time All-America selection. She is the all-time assists leader at Auburn, registering a total of 42 assists over four seasons. That mark is also the fifth best in SEC history. She also holds other Auburn records, including 89 matches played, 104 points, 11 game-winning goals, and she also ranks second with 86 matches started and 228 shots. Additionally, she sits third all-time with 31 goals. A second round pick of the Atlanta Beat in the 2012 Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) Draft, Frierson brings U.S. National Team experience to Sky Blue FC at the U-20 and U-23 level.
