“When Alex joined us in preseason, we could immediately see her potential to find success at this level. She has had a really productive few weeks and has done everything right to earn this contract,” VP of Soccer Operations and General Manager Haley Carter said. “She has pushed our forwards in training and is connecting well with her teammates, both on and off the field.
