Orlando Pride Waives Midfielder Nickolette Driesse


Orlando Pride has waived midfielder Nickolette Driesse. This comes just two days after her agent, One Dream Zero Distraction (1DZD), released a new highlight reel of her across multiple social channels.

“Despite limited playing time last season, Nikki remained the ultimate professional, turning up each day and displayed outstanding work ethic and enthusiasm,” Pride Head Coach Tom Sermanni said. “We wish Nikki the best of luck in the next steps of her career.”

Driesse, 23, was selected with the Pride’s second pick (No. 32 overall) in the 2017 National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) College Draft out of Penn State University. She appeared in four matches for the Pride during the 2017 NWSL season, totaling 47 minutes.
