Sam Mewis, reigning U.S. Female Player of the Year, traded to Kansas City




 

It's not often that the reigning U.S. Soccer Female Player of the Year trades uniforms during the offseason, but this is no normal offseason in the National Women's Soccer League.

Sam Mewis has been traded from the North Carolina Courage to the Kansas City Current for the third overall pick in the 2022 NWSL Draft and defender Kiki Pickett.

Mewis, 29, went to school at UCLA and was selected fourth overall by the Western New York Flash in the 2015 draft, staying with the club when it moves to North Carolina in 2015.
