Breakers strengthen defense with addition of Whitehill
The Boston Breakers have agreed to terms with defender Cat Whitehill, a 2004 Olympic gold medalist with the U.S. Women's National Team and three-year WPS veteran.
One of the most capped U.S. Women's National Team defenders with 134 appearances, Whitehill also scored 11 goals with the U.S. and played in the 2003 and 2007 FIFA Women's World Cups.
Whitehill began her WPS career in 2009 with the Washington Freedom. She played two seasons in Washington, starting all 42 games she appeared in. She started 17 games last season for the Atlanta Beat. Whitehill has four goal and four assists in WPS in 59 games played.
