Newly allocated to the Houston Dash Teresa Noyola will bring a strong college career to Houston.

The attacking midfielder played youth soccer for the US national team programs before joining Mexico's women's national team at age 20. At 23, she already has 10 caps for the national team - including two in the 2011 Women's World Cup.

She played for the California Storm before attending Stanford University for four seasons. While at Stanford, she notched 31 goals and 42 assists. Her senior year, she was named the 2011 College Cup's Most Outstanding Offensive Player, as well as the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She scored the game winning goal in the 2012 National Championship against Duke. She was drafted seventh overall in the 2012 WPS draft by the Western New York Flash, but the league suspended the 2012 season and eventually disbanded before she ha the opportunity to play.

With the WPS disbanded, she moved overseas, signing with ADO Den Haag. She made 15 appearances for the Dutch squad, scoring three goals before returning to the US to play for the newly started NWSL in 2013. She was allocated to the Seattle Reign, making 11 appearances with one goal and one assist before being traded mid season to FC Kansas City, where she played seven games.

Noyola was allocated to the Houston Dash on January 3. She will be looking to strengthen herself as a forward, putting together her speed and footwork to put the ball in the back of the net for the Dash.
