Sky Blue FC defender Caprice Dydasco will miss the 2020 NWSL Challenge Cup after suffering a torn right ACL during a team training session. The defender from Honolulu, Hawaii, sustained the injury during a drill in a small group training. She will undergo surgery on Wednesday, June 17, at the Hospital of Special Surgery in New York City and begin rehabilitation immediately.
“Caprice had been absolutely flying in preseason, so this injury is tough for her as well as the team,” said Head Coach Freya Coombe. “She has been very positive as the rehabilitation process begins. We wish her all the best for her upcoming surgery.”
“I am heartbroken to announce that I tore my ACL in training last week and will miss the Challenge Cup,” said Dydasco. “It is devastating to go through this again, but I know everything happens for a reason. I will be back stronger and ready for the 2020 season. I am motivated to start my journey back, and until then, I will be Sky Blue’s biggest fan, giving my full support from home.”
“Capy’s infectious positivity has been such a bright spot for us during preseason,” said General Manager Alyse LaHue. “She has taken this setback in stride and is approaching it with focused determination to return as soon as possible. We will be with her every step of the way.”
Dydasco, 26, joined Sky Blue via a trade with the Washington Spirit in 2019 after four seasons with the Spirit. The defender from Hawaii started in 23 games in 2019 and recorded 42 clearances, 10 blocks, and 38 interceptions in 2,028 minutes.
