Sunday marked a historic day for Notre Dame, as four-time Monogram winner Elizabeth Tucker (’14, soccer) was named the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year, becoming the first Fighting Irish student-athlete selected for the honor.
On and off the field, Tucker’s résumé is outstanding. A two-time captain and member of the 2010 national championship team, Tucker made 87 career starts and scored 19 goals. In the classroom, the Jacksonville native was a two-time first-team Academic All-American, 2014 ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, and the recipient of an NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship.
