ST. LOUIS – Two Mizzou women’s soccer players were selected in the inaugural Women’s Professional Soccer draft, held in St. Louis on Friday.

The Boston Breakers chose former star striker Jennifer Nobis (2002-05) in the fifth round, while senior defender Kat Tarr was taken with the Chicago Red Stars’ eighth-round pick.

“We are very excited for Jenny and Kat as they move forward in their professional careers,” Missouri head coach Bryan Blitz said. “Mizzou soccer continues to set an ever-growing standard of attracting and producing some of the top talent in the nation and these two players moving on to the next level is very much an indicator of that.”
