NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Cortney Fortunato came to Notre Dame last summer considered the top recruit in America and she is ending her freshman campaign as the best freshman in America as she was named WomensLax.com's Rookie of the Year on Friday morning. Both Fortunato and Irish teammate Margaret Smith were both named to WomensLax.com's 25-member All-American team as well.
Notre Dame is one of just six programs with at least two players selected for the WomensLax.com All-America team, joining Boston College, Maryland, North Carolina, Northwestern and Syracuse.
Fortunato topped Notre Dame in scoring as a freshman, posting team-highs with her 46 goals, 17 assists and 63 points. It was the second-highest point total ever for a Notre Dame freshman, eclipsed only by Byers' 78 in 2006.
