[PREVIEW] Six U.S. women's national team regulars -- Alex Morgan, Hope Solo, Megan Rapinoe, Stephanie Cox and Sydney Leroux with the Seattle Sounders Women and Becky Sauerbrunn with the D.C. United Women -- and two other players in the national team training camp -- Whitney Engen (Pali Blues) and Keelin Winters (Seattle Sounders Women) -- are among the players signed to play this summer in the W-League, which begins its 14th season on Friday.

Joanna Lohman (D.C. United Women) and Yael Averbuch (New Jersey Wildcats) are returning home after stints abroad in Spain and Russia.

The W-League's top young star will be U.S. U-20 sensation Lindsey Horan, who returns with Colorado Rush.

Canadian internationals Kaylyn Kyle, Chelsea Stewart and Desiree Scott will head the midfield for the Vancouver Whitecaps, one of several strong Canadian teams in the league.

Among the foreign standouts are Portuguese Edite Fernandes, an MVP finalist last season with the Santa Clarita Blue Heat, and Englishwoman Lianne Sanderson, who along with Lohman and Sauerbrunn will make the D.C. United Women the favorites in the Atlantic Division.
