Roster History[edit]

Initial Allocation[edit]

During September and October 2008, Saint Louis began building its team, getting Hope Solo, Lori Chalupny and Tina Ellertson through the 2008 USWNT Allocation, rights to Brazilians Daniela and Renata Costa, Swedish striker Lotta Schelin, Canadian Melissa Tancredi, Eniola Aluko of England, and Ingvild Stensland of Norway through the 2008 WPS International Draft, and India Trotter, Angie Woznuk, Joanna Lohman and Amanda Cinalli through the 2008 WPS General Draft.[1][2][3][4]

It turned out Saint Louis did not have a very successful draft, as Athletica ultimately failed to sign any of Stensland, Schlien, Trotter, and Renata Costa. Swede Sara Larsson and Brazilian Francielle joined the roster in their steads.[3][5][6][7]

On January 16, at the 2009 NSCAA convention held in St. Louis, the Athletica drafted Notre Dame forward Kerri Hanks, (first round, sixth overall,) Boston College alumnus Kia McNeill, (second round, ninth overall,) Texas defender Stephanie Logterman, (third round, twentieth overall,) Notre Dame defender Elise Weber, (trade* with Washington to be twenty-first,) UConn defender Niki Cross, (fifth round, thirty-fourth,) Villanova goalkeeper Jillian Loyden, (sixth round, thirty-seventh,) West Virginia University midfielder Lisa Stoia, (seventh round, forty-eighth,) Florida forward Megan Kerns, (eighth round, fifty-first,) Penn State defender/midfielder Sheree Gray, (ninth round, sixty-second,) and Clemson midfielder/forward Lydia Vandenbergh (tenth round, sixty-fifth).[8][9] *The Athletica traded away Joanna Lohman and their 23rd overall pick to get the 21st pick.[10]

On March 3, Athletica's initial preseason roster was released, along with those of all WPS teams, having 35 players listed.[11] On March 12, Athletica released nine of those players, including draftee Megan Kerns.[12] Post-Dispatch writer Tom Timmermann posted a slightly short list (down to twenty-four players) on March 16.

2009 In-season Transactions[edit]

In the first trade in WPS, Athletica gave the Los Angeles Sol two draft picks in exchange for Christie Welsh and Kendall Fletcher[13] while Lydia Vandenbergh was waived.[14]

In a move to trim the roster back down to regular size, Athletica traded Kerri Hanks, Francielle, and rights to Renata Costa to Sky Blue FC for Sarah Walsh, rights to Ester, and a conditional draft pick on June 26.[15]

2009-10 Offseason[edit]

In the first WPS expansion draft, Athletica lost Amanda Cinalli and Sara Larsson to the Atlanta Beat.[16] Niki Cross was picked up as a free agent by FC Gold Pride. Athletica later picked up Elaine and Madelaine Edlund.[17]
