Tegan McGrady did not change teams this offseason, but she feels like she is in a new setting nonetheless.
McGrady started all four preliminary-stage matches for the Washington Spirit at the 2020 National Women’s Soccer League Challenge Cup — nearly as many starts as all of 2019, which was a full, 24-game season. McGrady’s rookie season was halted by multiple injuries, but she is relishing a sophomore campaign in which she is healthy and ready to make a difference for the Washington Spirit.
“It’s definitely been a change of scenery for me to be on the field so much in the past eight days,” McGrady said. “I definitely didn’t have that last year. And I think as the days keep going on, I’m more confident in my attack, and being able to get up the field. That was something I lacked, I know, in the first couple of games.”
