History

Notre Dame's women's soccer team won the National Championship in 1995, 2004 and 2010 and were the runner-up in 1994, 1996, 1999, 2006, and 2008. Notre Dame is one of only three schools with multiple national titles, the others being North Carolina (21) and Portland (2). Notre Dame also ranks second in all-time title game appearances (8) behind North Carolina (24). Like Notre Dame, the University of Portland is also a private Roman Catholic university affiliated with the Congregation of Holy Cross. Notre Dame's women's soccer program started in 1988 under coach Chris Petrucelli. Their 1995 Big East title was the university's first in any sport. That same year, Petrucelli's squad, under the leadership of Cindy Daws, won the program's first national title, defeating Portland 1–0. Randy Waldrum, took over the program in 1999 and maintained the Fighting Irish's success, winning the national title in 2004 by beating UCLA 4–3 as well as capturing six Big East titles. Waldrum's 2010 squad won the school's third national title, going 21-2-2 and posting 15 shutouts and became the lowest ranked team to do so, beating undefeated Stanford in a 1–0 decision. In doing so, they outscored their postseason opponents 15-1. They also reached the College Cup for the 5th straight year, a school record. Their senior class won 87 matches in their 4 years, the most in that span. Three Notre Dame players have won the Hermann Trophy, given to the United States' best male and female collegiate soccer players. They are Cindy Daws (1996), Anne Makinen (2000) and Kerri Hanks (2006, 2008). Hanks is one of only four players to win the award twice. Notre Dame is also one of only two schools with three or more different Hermann Trophy recipients. [3]

On October 19, 2014, Elizabeth Tucker received the 2014 NCAA Woman of the Year Award. She became the first Notre Dame student-athlete in any sport to be selected for this prestigious honor in its 24-year history. She's also the first soccer player ever to win the award from any school. Elizabeth Tucker is also the first student-athlete in Notre Dame history to sweep all four of the university's major athletics honors in the same year. [4] What's truly amazing is that she did not play high school soccer and yet started in 22 of 25 games during her freshman year in 2010 and helped lead the Fighting Irish to the NCAA Division I Championship in that same year. She was a team captain by her junior year and as a senior, her teammates selected her as their most valuable player. [5] Her exceptional work ethic and fitness level enabled her to appear in all 92 matches of her college career (starting 87 times). Knowing that she did not play high school soccer, one begins to understand how all this was possible when one discovers that she was a track, cross country and basketball standout at Bishop Kenny High School in Jacksonville, Florida. For starters, this is where she anchored the three-time state championship winning 4 × 800 m relay team in 2007-09, was a member of 2008 state championship cross country team as well as a 2009 first-team all-state cross country selection. Tucker also earned all-city first team honors for basketball in 2009 and served as team captain.

On January 3, 2014, Waldrum resigned after 15 seasons with the Fighting Irish to become the head coach of newly established NWSL team Houston Dash. [6] On March 19, 2014, Theresa Romagnolo was appointed as his successor. [7] Prior to coaching the Fighting Irish, Romagnolo had been the women's soccer head coach at Dartmouth the past three seasons, and had also been an assistant coach at Stanford and at the University of San Diego. Romagnolo resigned on January 22, 2018, citing the desire to spend more time with her family. [8] Assistant coach Nate Norman was promoted to head coach on February 20, 2018. [9]
