Former University of Notre Dame women’s soccer standout Elizabeth Tucker (‘14), found yet another way to proudly represent her alma mater following the University’s spring Board of Trustees meetings May 4 and 5.

The 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year, Tucker became one of five new Board members elected during the summit, filling one of two spots designated for recent graduates.

Tucker earned a bachelor’s degree in accountancy from Notre Dame in 2014 and is a consultant for McKinsey & Company. She is one of the most decorated student-athletes in the University’s history, capped by her selection in 2014 as NCAA Woman of the Year – the first from Notre Dame and the first women’s soccer player from any university.

The Jacksonville, Florida, native helped the Fighting Irish to four consecutive NCAA Championship berths during her career (2010-13), including the 2010 national title and a spot in the 2012 NCAA quarterfinals. In fact, during that run to the 2010 NCAA crown, Tucker scored both goals in a 2-0 Fighting Irish win at No. 6 Oklahoma State in the quarterfinals, as Notre Dame became the lowest-seeded team (No. 4 in its quadrant, No. 13-16 in the 64-team field) to earn the title in the 32-year history of the NCAA Division I Women's Soccer Championship.
