The four NWSL players are goalkeeper Katelyn Rowland (North Carolina Courage), defender Sydney Miramontez (new Utah NWSL team), forward Darian Jenkins (North Carolina Courage) and forward Michele Vasconcelos (Chicago Red Stars). View the full roster
Rowland earned eight shutouts for the Courage this year and was one of three finalists for the NWSL Goalkeeper of the Year award. She was named to the 2017 NWSL Second XI. Miramontez joined FC Kansas City late in the season, playing every minute of all five of her starts for the Blues.
Jenkins was drafted by the Courage with the seventh overall pick in the 2017 NWSL College Draft, but missed the season because of a left ankle dislocation/fracture. The Red Stars drafted Vasconcelos with the first pick in the second round (11th overall), but she missed last season due to the birth of her child.
