Louisville women's soccer alum Allison Whitfield has signed with Racing Louisville FC. Whitfield joins the club on a national team replacement contract while Racing Louisville has a few members with the US National Team, Jamaican National Team, and Northern Ireland National Team.
Whitfield will join her old duPont Manual High School and Louisville teammate Emina Ekic.
Most recently, Whitfield has spent time with Racing Louisville as a key member of their W league squad. She has logged 567 minutes in 10 matches this season after recovering from ACL surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The outside back will dress for Sunday's match against the Orlando Pride and will be with the club through at least the end of July.
