Houston Dash pick Virginia, USA midfielder Morgan Brian with No. 1 pick
The Houston Dash selected University of Virginia midfielder Morgan Brian on Friday with the No. 1 pick of the 2105 draft by the National Women’s Soccer League.
The second, third and fourth choices were from UCLA – midfielder Sarah Killion to Sky Blue FC and defender Abigail Dahlkemper and midfielder Samantha Mewis, both to the Western New York Flash.
Brian twice won the Hermann Trophy as the NCAA’s top female soccer player. The senior had 10 goals and 14 assists in 18 games in 2014, helping the Cavaliers reach the NCAA final for the first time. She is at a U.S. women’s national team training camp in California.
The fifth pick went to the Chicago Red Stars, who took midfielder/forward Stephanie McCaffery of Boston College.
