Alumni in the News

Nichelle Prince and Lindsay Agnew each represented Canada at the Algarve Cup in Portugal Feb. 27-March 6. Canada finished third at the event after a PK triumph over Sweden. Prince recently scored in the Houston Dash's opener against the Seattle Reign April 14.
Devon Kerr recently joined Agnew and Prince, signing with the Houston Dash April 13.
“My first gameday experience with the Dash was different from my last experience with Ohio State and also different from my first gameday experience with Ohio State. Arriving as a freshman in college, you are often overly confident in your abilities and sometimes lacking maturity. As a rookie in the professional game, your college experience exposes you to be open and aware that you are in a unique and valuable position to learn from those that are more experienced. My first gameday was exciting and abundant with lessons. My biggest takeaway is that the women’s game is growing in popularity exponentially and I am fortunate enough to be in a position to contribute positively to its overall growth and development while living my dream as a professional soccer player. Dash fans are only second to Ohio State fans! DashOn! GoBucks!” - Devon Kerr

Fellow Buckeye Arden Holden also gained valuable professional experience, joining NWSL side Portland Thorns FC this preseason.

Another Buckeye, Tiffany Cameron, recently signed with Stabæk IF in the top league in Norway!
