TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Chicago Red Stars of the WPS invited former FSU Seminole women’s soccer standout Sarah Wagenfuhr to their preseason camp beginning March 1. She joins six other invitees hoping for a spot on the team’s inaugural roster.
Wagenfuhr enters the camp coming off a great senior season with the Seminoles. The team captain received All-America honor as well as earning a spot on the All-ACC First Team as she set career-highs in points (16), goals (4) and assists (8). In addition to her collegiate experience, Wagenfuhr also has gained valuable experience in her days competing with the United States Youth National teams. As a member of the U.S. U-20 team in 2006, she competed at the FIFA U-20 World Championships in Russia.
The Red Stars camp includes the invitees as well as previously drafted and contracted players. Training begins indoors in Bridgeview, Ill., for approximately 10 days followed by outdoor training in Florida. Rosters across the league will be cut to 18 players and four developmental players by March 24. The WPS will begin its inaugural season on March 29.
