The Washington Spirit have acquired the No. 3 pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft from the Houston Dash in exchange for forward/defender Lindsay Agnew and the No. 6 pick in the draft.
The Spirit already have the No. 1 pick, so they now hold two of the top three picks in this year’s draft, which will take place on Thursday at 10 a.m. ET. The Dash move down a few spots, from third to sixth, in the trade.
Agnew played in eight games for the Spirit last year after being selected in the second round (No. 19 overall pick). She recorded her first assist in a road win over Sky Blue FC in September.
“We want to thank Lindsay for all she did for the Spirit,” Spirit coach Jim Gabarra said in a Spirit news release about the trade. “We are happy for her with this new opportunity in Houston and wish her good luck.”
The 2018 NWSL College Draft will take place on Thursday, January 18, at 10 a.m. ET in Philadelphia.
