— In the search for a less-heralded player that could end up as a first-round pick in the 2020 NWSL College Draft, Virginia left back Courtney Petersen is near the top of the list. Part of that is her position, as a left-footed defender that can both get forward and contribute to the attack, while also playing solid defense. Virginia continues to roll past opponents at an impressive rate, scoring nine goals over the past week against Louisville and Boston College. Petersen got involved with a goal of her own in a 6-1 romp against the Eagles. Coping with the physicality of NWSL attackers is another challenge, but Petersen is a name to keep an eye on as the postseason builds.
