July 30, 2014 - National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) - Seattle Reign FC News Release

SEATTLE (July 30, 2014) - Seattle Reign FC today announced that the club has signed defender Holly Hein. Per league and club policy, terms of the agreements were not disclosed.

Prior to joining Reign FC, Hein appeared in eight matches for the Houston Dash while amassing 657 total minutes of action before being waived in June. The former Michigan captain joined the Dash in preseason as a trialist and signed with the club in April as a discovery player.

"Holly has been training with us for several weeks and has quickly integrated into the group," said head coach and general manager Laura Harvey. "She'll give us additional depth in the defense, which should prove valuable as we continue our push towards the playoffs."

In a separate move, Canadian Women's National Team defender Carmelina Moscato has been placed on the Disabled List and will miss the remainder of the 2014 NWSL regular season and playoffs. Moscato suffered a sprain to her left plantar fascia immediately following her recovery from a right foot injury suffered during National Team duty prior to the start of the NWSL pre-season camp. Moscato's injuries have limited her to 12 total minutes with Reign FC this season. Moscato will remain with the team through the end of this season to continue her rehab work.
