    Marshall Drafted In WPS First Round

    PHILADELPHIA - Several days before Friday's Women's Professional Soccer draft, Nikki Marshall got word from the Washington Freedom coaching staff that the organization had her in their sights as a first- or second-round pick.

    Confirmation of that plan came Thursday night - but with a stipulation: Keep it quiet.

    "Yeah, it was a little tough not to tell anyone," the former Colorado star said Friday morning with a laugh.

    Shortly before 9 a.m. MST, the soccer world knew their secret.

    The Freedom made Marshall the seventh overall pick of the 2010 WPS draft, fulfilling one of her childhood dreams and making her the Buffaloes' inaugural first-round selection.

    "She deserves it," CU head coach Bill Hempen said. "Somebody did their homework and found out the package she brings to a program. She's one of the best."

    "It's absolutely been one of my dreams," said Marshall, of Mead, Colo. "Along with playing in the Olympics, it's something I've been working hard for for a long, long time.

    "The past couple of years have been incredible for me . . . winning the World Cup, being drafted in the first round. It all hasn't sunk in yet; it's so great and exciting."
