A little Reign news let over from last night:
Midfielder Teresa Noyola is free to join Seattle Reign FC for preseason training and the start of the National Women’s Soccer League season in April following her early release from commitments to ADO Den Haag in the Netherlands. Noyola will connect with Reign FC in Japan on March 14 after the conclusion of the Algarve Tournament.
Noyola, 22, is a member of the Mexico National Team. She had been allocated to Reign FC in January.
“We’ve been working hard to get Teresa back to us for the start of our season and, with some thanks to ADO, we are happy to have made it happen,” said Reign FC head coach Laura Harvey. “Teresa has benefited greatly from her time in Europe and with her international experience and creative, attacking flare, she has a major role to play in the success of our team this season.”
As a Stanford senior in 2011 Noyola won college soccer’s highest honor, the Hermann Trophy, after leading the Cardinal to the NCAA championship. She scored the only goal in the final versus Duke. Noyola was also the 7th pick of the 2012 WPS draft. At the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup Noyola played two of Mexico’s three group stage matches.
Seattle Reign FC is one of eight founding members of the NWSL. U.S. National Team stars Hope Solo and Megan Rapinoe were among seven international players assigned to Seattle in the allocation process.
