Rosemary Kathleen Lavelle is an American professional soccer player who is a midfielder for the Washington Spirit of the National Women's Soccer League and the United States national team.
A four-year varsity girl's soccer player in High School, Lavelle was rewarded the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Sports Women of the Year award in 2013. That same year, she recruited to the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Lavelle was a starting player in her first 19 matches in the Big Ten Conference. She was ranked freshman of the year, and led the team with 73 shots. As a junior, she was named first-team All-American by NSCAA. The last time a Wisconsin Badger achieved this was in 1991. At Wisconsin, Lavelle’s game continued to expand. Her deft, gasp-inducing touches and imagination didn’t go unnoticed: her junior year, she earned her first call-up to the U.S. National Team.
Lavelle was then selected as the number one overall draft pick at the 2017 NWSL College Draft by the Boston Breakers. Lavelle started her professional career well, scoring two goals in eight games and was named Player of the Month for April. The Breakers then folded before the start of the 2018 season. A dispersal draft was held by the NWSL to distribute Breakers players across the league. Lavelle was the first overall pick by Washington Spirit.
She made her first appearance for the United States on March 4, 2017, during a match against England at the 2017 SheBelieves Cup. She was named Player of the Match following the team's 1–0 loss.
Lavelle was named to the U.S. WNT roster for the 2018 CONCACAF Women's Championship. She appeared in all five games for the U.S and scored three goals. Her final goal of the tournament was scored in the second minute of the Championship Game against Canada, helping the U.S to a 2–0 victory, and their second straight CONCACAF Championship.
Even though Lavelle was a long-term member of the U.S. Youth National Teams, 2019 was her first World Cup with the full team. She scored the insurance goal in the 2019 Woman’s World Cup Final 2-0 victory over the Netherlands in Lyon, France, helping the U.S. to secure their fourth Women's World Cup Championship title.
