BYU women’s soccer midfielder Cloee Colohan was selected by the Western New York Flash as the No. 14 overall pick in the National Women’s Soccer League draft on Jan. 17.

Colohan, a native of West Point and a transfer from the University of Portland, played in every game of her two-year run with the BYU women’s soccer team. As a senior she ranked second on the 2013 team in points with 16 and ranked fifth as a junior in 2012 with 13.

Colohan’s leadership was an integral part of the No. 19 Cougars’ 2013 campaign, which won its last eight games before falling to Colorado in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

Not far from Colohan’s new team is the Sky Blue FC club out of New Jersey, where former BYU defender Lindsi Cutshall was drafted almost exactly a year ago.

The Flash finished the 2013 season with a record of 11–5–8, advancing through the playoffs to the championship game, where it ultimately fell to the Portland Thorns FC.
