We’re all eagerly waiting to see the back-to-back NWSL Champion North Carolina Courage return to the pitch in 2020, but in the meantime, how about we kick off the 2020 Starting XI Questions series? Courage Country sat down with assistant coach, Nathan Thackeray who works, coaches, and mentors the Courage corps of keepers to test out the 2020 Courage Country Starting XI Questions.
Courage Country sat down after a practice leading up to the 2019 NWSL championship on North Carolina Courage home turf, and talked to two of the goalkeepers, Adelaide “Addy” Gay, and Samantha “Sam” Leshnak. Both keepers played down the road in Chapel Hill for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and now are both playing for another North Carolina team.
Weather always seems to rear its wet, ugly head when it comes to game day for the North Carolina Courage. Welcome to summers in NC. The 2019 season has been no exception, with rain and lightning affecting multiple games. Forward Lynn Williams chatted about how the team spends their time during delays, and a time when they got reprimanded.
