TUKWILA, Wash. – Sounders Women midfielder, Melissa Busque, has been called up to join the Canadian National Team in Morgantown, West Virginia on May 15th-19th. The camp is a part of the EXCELeration program, which was developed by the Canadian coaching staff to help younger players transition from the youth national level to the full team.
When asked about her selection Busque said, “I know it won’t be easy, but I thrive for competition and I can’t wait to play with some of the best players in the nation.”
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Former Alabama soccer player Victoria Frederick earned a spot with the Seattle Reign of the newly formed National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL).
Frederick, who played at Alabama from 2007-10 under current head coach Todd Bramble, will suit up alongside the likes of United States National Team members Hope Solo, Megan Rapinoe and Amy Rodriguez, as members of the Reign squad.
Her road to playing professional soccer was not an easy one, according to Frederick. She played two different stints at the semi-professional level with the Seattle Sounders of the USL W-League in 2010 and 2012.
TUKWILA, Wash. – The Sounders Women sign Canadian midfielder, Melissa Busque, adding to their roster of international imports. The announcement comes after the Sounder’s April 14th exhibition game against Oregon State, where Busque had an impressive showing despite the 0-1 defeat.
