The NWSL season came to a conclusion over the weekend in Louisville where the Washington Spirit and Chicago Red Stars met in the championship game. KC native, Dorian Bailey started and played the whole 120 minutes for the Spirit as they pulled off a 2-1 win over the Red Stars to win their first championship. Bailey, in her third season with the Spirit played in 23 games, 19 of them starts and played over 1,800 minutes for the Spirit.

In other news, three former players earned All League honors in the USL Championship this season.

On the second team, former Swope Park Rangers Mark Segbers and James Musa both made the defense.
