Spirit Waive Tiffany Weimer
Four weeks after losing most of her possessions in a fire at the home of the family she was staying with the Washington Spirit women’s professional soccer team has waived forward Tiffany Weimer.
It was announced Thursday that club had waived Weimer.
“We appreciate all the hard work Tiffany has put in to get back to 100 percent,” said Spirit general manager and head coach Jim Gabarra. “Our competition for roster spots has been very high, and our decisions are difficult. We thank Tiff for her contributions to the club and wish her good luck.”
Weimer thank the organization, teammates, and the fans via Twitter Friday morning. She especially thanked her teammate and roommate Tori Huster. Weimer came to the Spirit in a trade from the Portland Thorns ahead of the 2014 season. She injured her knee during 2014 preseason which sidelined her for the season. In 2015, Weimer played in four games for the Spirit while still recovering from her injury. A standout at Penn State University from 2002-05, she scored 91 goals in 97 games during her four-year career with the Nittany Lions.
Earlier this month, Weimer was one of the two Spirit players who lost most of their possessions in a house fire on Aspen Dale Court in Boyds. The other player Tori Huster remains with the team.
