MORRISTOWN, N.J. (September 18, 2014) - Sky Blue FC announced today that the club has re-signed midfielder Katy Freels for the 2015 National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) season. Per team and league policy, terms of the deal were not released.

"I'm so excited to be back with Sky Blue FC for the 2015 NWSL season," Freels said. "I've grown so much as a player and person these last two years and I'm extremely thankful to be a part of this organization going forward."

Freels, 24, played a crucial role as a center midfielder during the 2014 campaign, scoring five goals and tallying four assists in 23 starts. She ranked eighth in the NWSL in minutes played with 2,021.

"I thought we showed a lot of character over the course of last season and finished in really good form," Freels added. "If we can start this upcoming season with that same belief and confidence, it'll be an exciting season for our club and fans."

The Homewood, Alabama, native was a first-round pick by Sky Blue FC in the 2013 NWSL Supplemental Draft. In her first season with the New Jersey club, she led the team in assists with six and also converted one goal.

Prior to her NWSL career, Freels was a member of the 2012 WPSL Elite Western New York Flash and won the league championship that season.

Freels, an Auburn University alum, was drafted 10th overall by the Atlanta Beat in 2012 before the WPS folded.
