Boyds, Md. (3/30/19) – At the invitation of Maryland District 15 Delegate Lily Qi, the Washington Spirit first team made a trip to Annapolis, MD to visit the Maryland State House and observe the House of Delegates legislative session.

For many of the Spirit players and staff, this was their first experience in the historic Maryland State Capitol.  “One of the greatest aspects of playing in our area is the opportunity to visit national landmarks, observe democracy in action, and learn about the history of the United States.  This visit is the first of many that our club will make like this as we seek to provide the best player experience in the NWSL,” said Spirit Head Coach Richie Burke.

Delegate Qi, State Delegate for Maryland’s District 15, recently extended this invitation to the Spirit and she and her staff were very generous with their time and hospitality to the team.  Steve Baldwin of the Spirit Ownership Group said, “It was an honor for the Spirit Organization, players, and coaches to be invited to the State House by Delegate Lily Qi.  Our players and coaches really enjoyed the day and everyone with the Spirit appreciated the very strong support of Delegate Qi and her staff.  She is a wonderful advocate for our women and our club.”
