Hayley Haagsma to miss 2014 season for Sky Blue FC

Haley HaagsmaSky Blue FC rookie defender Hayley Haagsma will miss the entire 2014 NWSL season with a torn ACL, the team announced March 20.

Haagsma suffered the ACL tear in her left knee during the club’s opening exhibition match on March 15 against St. John’s University.

“We feel awful for Hayley,” Jim Gabarra, Sky Blue FC technical director and head coach said. “She did all the work to prepare for her first professional season and was very impressive from day one of camp. We look forward to her return next year and for her contributions this season as she rehabs.”

The 22-year-old was selected in second round of the 2014 NWSL College Draft. Her contract has a club option that could see Haagsma return to Sky Blue FC in 2015.
