Exactly four months ago, on June 11, 2019, McKenzie Meehan was traded from New Jersey-based Sky Blue NC to the North Carolina Courage in exchange for Elizabeth Eddy. Meehan sat down with Courage Country to talk about the process, first impressions, and what she’s bringing to the Courage.
Since relocating from Western New York to North Carolina back in 2017, the North Carolina Courage have celebrated success on the field and even bigger success in creating a culture on and off the field. Courage players and coaches enjoy each others company, are competitive, but friendly at the same time. But it hasn’t always been like that. Forward Lynn Williams reflects on her beginnings with the WNY Flash and where things have ended up here in North Carolina.
In a first, Courage Country sat down last week with a pair of North Carolina Courage’s players in a simultaneous interview.

Fresh off of a morning training session, they concluded their interview by answering the Starting XI Questions. Read the pair’s hilarious answers below.
The North Carolina Courage celebrated the treble in 2018, winning the NWSL Shield, the inaugural Women’s International Champions Cup, and ultimately the 2018 NWSL championship.
