The Washington Spirit announced Thursday the signing of United States U-23 women’s national team forward Crystal Thomas. The signing comes in advance of Saturday’s home meeting with the Dash.
Thomas spent preseason and training camp with the Spirit.
“Crystal came in from day one of preseason and has provided a good energy and high level of intensity to our team,” Spirit general manager and head coach Jim Gabarra said in a team press release. “She offers a lot of good attacking qualities as well as an understanding of our style of play. We look forward to seeing how Crystal takes this opportunity.”
Thomas tallied 31 goals and 17 assists in her college career at Georgetown and Notre Dame. She received her first call-up to U-23 training camp in January.
