Washington Spirit Sign Goalkeeper Kelsey Wys

November 28, 2017

The Washington Spirit has signed goalkeeper Kelsey Wys to a new contract ahead of the 2018 NWSL season.

   Wys, 26, will enter her fourth season as a member of the Spirit in 2018. The Florida State University graduate and former U.S. U-23 Women’s National Team player first joined the club in 2015, and played an integral role in Washington’s run to the 2016 NWSL Championship.

   During her first season with the Spirit in 2015, Wys started 11 games, recording 35 saves and three shutouts. In 2016, she started 12 regular season games and both postseason matches, recording a pair of clean sheets while racking up 68 saves over the 14 total appearances.

   Wys did not play during the 2017 NWSL season as she spent the majority of the campaign making a full recovery from a torn ACL, sustained in November 2016 while playing for Australian side Newcastle Jets on loan.

   The move could be an effort to solidify the Spirit’s net minder spot after number one goalkeeper Stephanie Labbé left the team for personal reasons with three games remaining in the 2017 season. Labbé is the starting goalie for the Canadian National Womens' Team.  It has been speculated that she may not return to the Spirit next season.
