The National Women’s Soccer League named Houston Dash goalkeeper Jane Campbell and defender Caprice Dydasco to the NWSL’s Best XI of the Month, presented by Mastercard. 

This is Campbell’s third time being named to the Best XI of the Month team and the first since March 2018. The shot stopper tallied the lowest goals against average (GAA) in the regular season at 0.83 GAA. Campbell, who was drafted No. 15 overall by Houston in the 2017 NWSL Draft, also made the most regular season saves this year, nearly missing out on century mark at 93 saves.

To add to her stellar 2023 regular season campaign, Campbell broke the club record for most regular season appearances with 126 appearances to date. She was one of three goalkeepers to record eight clean sheets this season, a club and personal record.
