Real Salt Lake Women announced their roster today with their first match on Saturday in Orem. The roster is largely made of former and current college athletes and amateur players with an interspersing of professionals. To top it off, there's a familiar last name floating in the mix: Rimando.
Midfielder Jacqui Rimando, wife of the inimitable Nick Rimando, has a history in professional soccer: She was part of the Washington Freedom, a side in the now-defunct Women's United Soccer Association. WUSA shuttered in 2004 and is but one of several women's leagues to have done so since the creation of MLS.
There's representation on the team from all major colleges in the area — University of Utah, BYU, Utah State, Weber State and Utah Valley are all represented.
RSL Women's first match is Saturday at 5 p.m. in Orem, Utah against Utah Starzz at Orem Lakeside Complex, Field #7.
