That Dash made quite a few moves during the 2018-19 offseason, looking to catapult the team into its first-ever playoff since joining the league in 2014.
Ahead of the 2019 season, the Dash brought two players back to the NWSL in Mexico international Arianna Romero and Canada international Sophie Schmidt. Romero played with the Dash during their inaugural season before being traded to the Washington Spirit then ultimately going overseas. Schmidt, a midfielder, previously played for Sky Blue FC, eventually departing for FFC Frankfurt.
Another key transaction for the Dash could be one which involved the Pride, acquiring Christine Nairn via trade in February.
