Rutgers goalkeeper Meagan McClelland has accepted an invitation to preseason training camp with the Chicago Red Stars of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL). The Scarlet Knight graduate will report to camp on Monday, Jan. 23 to train with a pool of professional players and prospects.
The Kearny, New Jersey native ended her college career second all-time in NCAA history with 9,482 goalkeeper minutes, from which she recorded 43 solo shutouts, 49 team shutouts, a 0.69 goals-against average and an .801 save percentage. McClelland played in 102 games with 101 starts in net, picking up four All-Big Ten honors and three United Soccer Coaches All-Region awards along the way.
In 2021, McClelland led Rutgers to a perfect 10-0 record in Big Ten play en route to the school’s first Big Ten championship before a run to the Final four of the College Cup.
