WASHINGTON, D.C. –– Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) announced today that she will introduce a resolution congratulating the Washington Spirit on winning National Women’s Soccer League championship. The team overcame adversity off the field this season, including its head coach being fired after a harassment investigation. The championship is the first for the team since it was founded in 2012.

“D.C. is indeed the ‘District of Champions,’” Norton said. “The Washington Spirit’s championship shows how hard work, resolve, and teamwork can overcome obstacles large and small.”
