SANTA CLARA, Calif. – All-American Izzy D'Aquila was taken in the first round with the 12th pick by the Portland Thorns in the National Women's Soccer League Draft on Tuesday.

D'Aquila carried the Broncos on her shoulders most of the 2022 season, setting career-highs with 19 goals and 43 points. Those numbers were fifth and tied for eighth in a single season in program history. She also finished her career with 50 goals, just the seventh Bronco to reach the milestone.
