UW's Wagner Picked in 9th Round of Women's Soccer League Draft
Dec. 13, 2000
SEATTLE - Washington senior midfielder Theresa Wagner was selected by the Bay Area CyberRays in the ninth round of the inaugural Women's United Soccer Association draft on Monday.
A product of Seattle's Lakeside High School, Wagner was the 72nd pick overall in the draft that included numerous foreign and professional players. She was among a small percentage of college seniors selected in the 120-player draft.
Wagner owns every assist record in Washington's 10-year history, including the standards for assists in a game (4), season (12) and career (26). She helped lead the Huskies to an 18-3 overall record in the 2000 season and their first Sweet 16 appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Washington became the first team from outside the state of California to win the Pacific-10 Conference championship.
Wagner was recognized with first-team All-Pac-10 honors, second-team All-West Region accolades and first-team Pac-10 All-Academic acclaim this season.
She joins the CyberRays whose roster includes USA World Cup hero Brandi Chastain. The WUSA begins its first season of play this spring.
