A Spirited Group of Lions
Former women’s soccer All-American midfielder Christine Nairn ’12 posted a very cool shot on her Instagram account Thursday: a pride of Nittany Lions who are now teammates on the Washington Spirit of the National Women’s Soccer League.
From left, that’s forward Tiffany Weimer ’06, Nairn, midfielder Joanna Lohman ’04, defender Ali Krieger ’07 (fresh off helping the U.S. to World Cup glory), and rookie defender Whitney Church ’15. The Spirit, who play their home games in Boyds, Md., are back in action Saturday when they host the Houston Dash—whose starting goalkeeper is none other Erin McLeod ’06.
