MORRISTOWN, N.J. – Former Cougar Lindsi Cutshall re-signed with Sky Blue FC of the NWSL where she has played the last two seasons since being drafted fourth overall in January of 2013.
Cutshall started in 11 of the 14 games she played this season and scored three goals on just five shots from her central defender position. Cutshall played eight games her rookie season at Sky Blue FC when the team went 10-6-6 to make the playoffs.
"All players take a full season to adjust to the level of play in the NWSL, and Lindsi has reached that point,” Sky Blue FC head coach and technical director Jim Gabarra said. “Our expectations are for her to have a breakout season in 2015.”
The NWSL season will begin in March and take a two-week break for the Women's World Cup in June.
Cutshall helped lead BYU to the Elite Eight in 2012 as she became the first MAC Hermann Trophy Semifinalist in BYU history. That year BYU went 20-2-2 and were unbeaten in 20 straight games before falling in the second overtime to North Carolina in the NCAA tournament. Cutshall scored three goals and made two assists in addition to playing the most minutes in a season by a Cougar in the past seven seasons.
