The Huskies are coming off a solid 2009 campaign in which they advanced to the NCAA Second Round for the second straight season. UW returns leading scorer McKenna Waitley along with All-West Region midfielder Kate Deines, goalkeeper Kari Davidson and top defender Kendyl Pele. All in all, UW returns seven starters from last year’s squad that finished 12-6-4.
The Sounders women’s club competes in the United Soccer League’s W-League, the second-highest level of women’s professional soccer in the U.S. After her release from the UW this spring, Kate Deines will also play for the Sounders Women during the 2010 Season before returning to UW in the fall. This campaign is the 10th year of Sounders Women soccer. They have made the national semi-finals four times in their history. The club finished third last year in the Western Conference.
The Huskies come into the match after their victory of Seattle University last Friday by a score of 1-0. The Sounders Women continued to fine tune their squad over the weekend in a match against Oregon State.
