With the United States’ Women’s World Cup victory over the summer, Shannon Boxx concluded her professional soccer career the same way she began her time at Notre Dame: with a championship.
Boxx, a 1999 Notre Dame grad and a mainstay in the U.S. National Team’s midfield since 2003, was a freshman in 1995. That year, she appeared in 25 games as the Irish smashed their way to the program’s first-ever NCAA title.
After winning a national title in her first year, she was a part of the two highest-scoring teams in NCAA history — the 1996 Irish scored 140 goals and the 1997 squad followed up with 135.
