BYU All-American Lindsi Lisonbee Cutshall was drafted fourth overall Friday by New Jersey's Sky Blue FC of the National Women's Soccer League. Sky Blue FC won the inaugural WPS Championship in 2009.
The National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) is the top level professional women's soccer league in the United States. It is set to begin play in spring 2013 with eight teams; four of them are former members of Women's Professional Soccer (WPS), which ended in 2012. The NWSL has plans to expand to at least 10 teams in the future.
"This is such a huge honor for me and I'm so excited to continue playing soccer at the next level," Cutshall said. "I'm so grateful for amazing coaches, teammates and family that have supported me and made me better."
