San Diego Wave Fútbol Club selected two players in today’s 2024 NWSL Draft. San Diego picked defender Kennedy Wesley (12th overall) in the first round and forward/midfielder Mya Jones (47th overall) in the third round.

In a draft-day trade, San Diego acquired the No. 47 pick overall from Racing Louisville in exchange for $40,000 in allocation money and the Wave’s natural fourth round pick. 

Wesley played at Stanford University from 2019-2023, where she was a two-time team captain, NCAA Champion (2019) and two-time Pac-12 Champion (2019, 2022). The 5-5 defender finished her career as Stanford’s all-time leader in matches played (104) and ranked ninth in games started (92), starting the final 60 matches in her career. 

Jones spent the last five seasons at University of Memphis. The Canadian international appeared in 93 matches in her collegiate career, scoring 20 goals and 13 assists in her final two seasons. In 2023, Jones was named the AAC Championship Most Outstanding Offensive Player, AAC Championship All-Tournament Team, AAC Offensive Player of the Year and AAC All-Conference First-Team.
