History[edit]

College career[edit]

Abegg played for the Stanford University women's soccer team from 2005 to 2008, starting in all ninety-one matches that Stanford played during her college career and scoring three goals.[2]

Professional career[edit]

Abegg was drafted by FC Gold Pride at the 2009 WPS Draft. Despite being promoted from the developmental roster to the full squad, Abegg was deemed surplus to requirements at season's close by Albertin Montoya.[3] She appeared for FC Gold Pride in 6 games.

In 2010, Abegg was picked up by Washington Freedom as a developmental player.[4] In 2011 and 2012 she played for D.C. United Women of the W-League, and in early 2013 for the Gulf Coast Texans of the Women's Premier Soccer League. [5][1] Abegg captained D.C. United Women in both 2011 and 2012.[6]

On July 31, 2013, Abegg signed with the Washington Spirit as a free agent. She made a debut with the team later that night in a 3-0 loss to the Western New Flash.[7]

She retired from the Washington Spirit on February 14, 2014. In total for the Washington Spirit she started four games out of five appearances, recording 409 minutes of total play. [8]

Retirement[edit]

On February 14, 2014 Marisa stated her retirement from professional soccer. She has planned to put her education first and help people in need through healthcare. [9]
