Last Friday, recent Northeastern women’s soccer graduate Hanna Terry agreed to terms with the Portland Thorns FC of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL).
Earlier this month, Terry played with the Thorns as an amateur player in a match on July 15 versus the Washington Spirit, but joins the club now for the reminder of the season.
Terry played a large role in helping the Huskies win the 2013 CAA title, being named the Tournament Most Outstanding Player, registering two goals and one assist over three games. Originally from Park City, Utah, Terry twice earned All-CAA First-Team honors and finished her Huskies’ career with seven goals to go along with 14 assists, good for No. 4 all-time at NU.
“Hanna has all the ingredients to become an impact player in the league: speed, skill, finishing ability and work ethic,” Thorns FC head coach Paul Riley said on the team’s official website. “She is an investment for the future and a player that could help us in the ‘business’ part of the season.”
Ironically, Terry wasn’t the only Husky to sign a professional deal on July 25. Former women’s soccer standout and all-time leading scorer Veronica Napoli, a 2013 graduate, inked a deal with FC Twente in the Netherlands.
