PHILADELPHIA – Virginia senior forward Caitlin Miskel (Boca Raton, Fla.) was selected by the Washington Freedom in the seventh round (63rd overall selection) in the 2010 Women’s Professional Soccer Draft held Friday at the Philadelphia Convention Center.
Miskel is the latest former Cavalier to join the league. Last year, eight former Virginia players competed in the league during its debut season, the third highest total of any college.
A four-year starter, Miskel finished her Virginia career with eight goals and 18 assists for 34 career points. Her eight career game-winning assists rank fifth in school history.
This past season, Miskel appeared in 21 games, starting 20, and had one goal and five assists.
