“I am absolutely ecstatic about signing for the Boston Breakers. Boston is the ultimate sports town, and I can't wait to be a part of the community that makes it great,” Andrews said. “Thank you to my friends and family who helped me get to this level. This is only the beginning, and I can't wait to bring my home – New England – with me on this journey.”
Andrews most recently played with the U.S. U-23 Women’s National Team at a tournament in La Manga, Spain. She scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over Norway on March 6.

A member of the U-15, U-17, U-20 and U-23 U.S. national teams, Andrews served as a captain for the U-15 team in 2010 and the U-17 team in 2011-12.
