The Chicago Red Stars announced the re-signing of defender Arin Wright to a two-year contract.

Wright has been a member of the Red Stars since she was drafted in 2015 from the University of Kentucky.

"We are thrilled to bring Arin back to Chicago," said Chicago Red Stars Associate General Manager Michelle Lomnicki in a statement. "She has every quality you want around the team and the club: Passionate, hardworking, quality leadership, community-driven and a force on the field. Arin's leadership and voice will be important for the club as we rebuild the team culture to guide us into the future."

Since joining the Red Stars, Wright has been named to the NWSL Best-XI (2016), the NWSL Best XI Second Team (2015), nominated for Defender of the Year and was an Iron Woman in the 2017 season, playing all 2,130 minutes in 24 matches.

—Competing in the Gavitt Tipoff Games for the first time since 2019, the Northwestern University Wildcats (3-0) defeated Georgetown (2-1)—a team well-known for its 21-game losing streak last season—by a score of 75-63 on Nov. 15 in D.C., The Daily Northwestern noted.

Chase Audige scored 13 of his 17 points in the second half and Boo Buie had all 12 of his points after halftime as NU won the first meeting between the schools, according to CBS Chicago.

Northwestern next plays Purdue-Fort Wayne on Friday, Nov. 18.

—Free agent catcher Willson Contreras rejected the Cubs' qualifying offer before the 3 p.m. deadline on Nov. 15, NBC Chicago reported.

By Contreras turning down the offer (a one-year deal worth $19.65 million), the Cubs will receive draft pick compensation in 2023 if he signs elsewhere.

Contreras has probably played his last game as a Cub. He's the top free-agent catcher this winter and is positioned to land a multi-year deal, and the Cubs haven't held extension talks with him in years.

He has spent his entire professional career with the Cubs after signing as an international free agent from Venezuela in 2009.
