The first Women's Professional Soccer (WPS) allocations will be announced, and according to the Washington Post's Soccer Insider, star Abby Wambach is headed (back) to the Washington Freedom.

Wambach, who played for the WUSA's Freedom, will be joined by Cat Whitehill and Ali Krieger on the Freedom, one of seven teams set to debut in 2009. Like Wambach, Whitehill was injured and missed the Olympics.
