Utah Royals FC has re-signed three players to its roster ahead of the 2020 season.

The club announced Friday that it has reached new agreements with defender Katie Bowen, and midfielders Lo’eau LaBonta and Mallory Weber.

“We are excited to welcome back Bowen, Lo’eau and Mallory to the Royals for this upcoming season and we look forward to seeing what they continue to bring in 2020,” URFC general manager Stephanie Lee said in a statement.

For Bowen and LaBonta, it will be their third season with the Royals. Utah acquired Weber during the 2019 season after she was waived by the Portland Thorns.
