Prince William's Ali Krieger, an alternate with the Gold Medal-winning Olympic Team, has been assigned to the Washington Freedom. She'll be joining star Abby Wambach and defender Cat Whitehill, who were also named to the team this week.
Ali is the daughter of long-time Prince William Soccer coach Ken Krieger, arguably one of the nation's top youth coaches. Ali played for her dad's Prince William Sparklers team growing up.
The Freedom will play their home games at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Germantown in 2009.
