The Chicago Red Stars have set their 25-player roster for the 2013 National Women's Soccer League season.
The club, which opens regular-season play April 14 against Seattle Reign FC at the Benedictine Sports Complex in Lisle, completed its roster with the signings of Lydia Vandenbergh, a discovery player selection, and Rachel Quon, the team's first pick in the second round of the inaugural NWSL College Draft.
Vandenbergh, a 29-year-old defender who competed collegiately at Clemson, was a member of the Red Stars during WPS in 2009 and 2010. Quon is a 21-year-old defender from Stanford and a native of Lake Forest. Both players will help anchor a backline that includes Canadian National Team goalkeeper Erin McLeod and defender Carmelina Moscato.
The Red Stars' preseason schedule includes a trip to Marquette at 4:30 p.m. March 24, and a visit to Notre Dame at 6 p.m. April 3.
The team will practice and play additional preseason contests in Austin, Texas, from March 25-31 before returning to prepare for their NWSL home opener on April 14 against Seattle.
