Milazzo, Red Stars agree to 2-year contract extension

The Chicago Red Stars and defender Tatumn Milazzo have agreed to a two-year contract extension, the team announced.

The deal keeps the Orland Park native with the team through at least the 2024 season. It also includes a one-year option.

The second-year defender was named to the the National Women's Soccer League Best XI of the month in June and to the league's second Best XI team after the season.

She led all NWSL defenders in clearances, 103, and interceptions, 58 on the season. She also scored two goals and registered an assist.

"I'm so excited to be extending my contract with Chicago," Milazzo said. "To play for my hometown, in front of my friends and family, has always been a dream.

"I love this city and I'm so hopeful for the future of this organization. I'm ready to do whatever it takes to bring this club to its full potential. The players, fans and all the little kids watching deserve that."
