DURHAM, N.C. – One of the best to ever don the Duke Blue and White continues to shine for her home country, as Rebecca Quinn helped lead the Canadian Women’s National Team to a 3-1 showing in the Algarve Cup (Feb. 28 - March 7), which featured three-straight shutouts to wrap up play.
Quinn, who now has 37 international caps and 19 starts after the tournament, went the distance in all three clean sheets, as Canada defeated Russia 1-0, Korea Republic 3-0 and Japan 2-0 to post 270-consecutive minutes of shutout play. One of the defensive mainstays for Canada’s senior squad, Quinn has scored three goals and posted two assists since first joining the WNT in March 2014 for the Cyprus Cup.
The United Soccer Coaches First Team All-American closed out her Blue Devil career last December with a stellar redshirt senior season that saw her also be named the ACC’s Midfielder of the Year and a semifinalist for the MAC Hermann Trophy. Quinn played in 22 contests, drawing 21 starts, tallying three goals and four assists and helping the Blue Devils post a school record 23 wins and 18 shutouts.
Quinn was drafted by the Washington Spirit with the third overall pick in the 2018 NWSL College Draft, becoming the highest pick in Duke history and the highest drafted Canadian in NWSL history. Quinn is set to report to the Spirit’s training camp later this week ahead of her rookie campaign. Washington begins preseason play Saturday, March 10 for a friendly against the University of North Carolina in Leesburg, Va.
