RRWSL Fosters Houston Dash NWSL Hopeful

I am sure all of you know that the newly re-branded and re-formed women’s professional soccer organization in the U.S., the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL), has recently added a new team in Houston, Texas as a part of the Houston Dynamo franchise.  What you might not know is, the Dynamo hosted an open tryout February 15-16, and one of our own RRWSL members was selected to join the Houston Dash for the pre-season!

Haley Crane, a goalkeeper for the RRWSL Open Division II Clash, was one of 140 women who answered that call for tryout on February 15.  Of that 140, 18 were invited back the next day to advance to the next stage of selection.  The final five hopefuls were selected from the 18 women who returned that day – three field players, and two goalkeepers – and Haley Crane was one of them!

The selected few reported to Dynamo HQ (picture:  bat cave with a gulf view.  Just kidding!) on March 8, submitted to a physical and medical evaluation, and began training on Monday, March 10 with the Houston Dash.

Round Rock Women’s Soccer League is beyond proud to be connected with this talented woman, and we will be sure to follow her rise as she continues on in her professional career.  Though many of us here come out each Sunday for a little recreation, sisterhood, and maybe a bit of fun exercise, we are able to maintain our competitive edge and use it to grow in this game we all so passionately love.

Who knows what the future holds for the rest of us?

Please join me in a wholehearted, all-caps CONGRATULATIONS to Haley!  Follow the Houston Dash and get more info at http://www.houstondynamo.com/houstondash.

Thank you for this day.
Thank you for the chance to play.
Let my feet be fast and my kicks be strong.
And help me cheer my teammates on.
