The writing was on the wall as soon as Sky Blue drafted Clemson University and Canadian international goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan with the 23rd overall pick in the National Women’s Soccer League college draft in January.

One of the two Carolines who shared the goalkeeping duties last summer– either Stanley or Casey — would have to go.

And it was Caroline Stanley who was waived by Sky Blue.

Stanley, 23, started 11 matches for Sky Blue in 2016 after being signed as a free agent before the start of the preseason. She registered a total of 940 minutes, with 33 saves and a 2-4-4 record.

Sky Blue will enter the season with two of the youngest goalkeepers in the NWSL. Casey, 22, is a second-year player from William and Mary, while Sheridan, 21, is preparing for her first professional season.

Sky Blue opens training camp Monday.
