Soccer Senior in Rare Company with Mia Hamm


Author: Notre Dame Magazine staff

Mia Hamm, generally considered the greatest women’s soccer player in history, was the first player ever to record more than 70 goals and 70 assists during a college career.

Now there’s a second: Notre Dame senior Jenny Streiffer.

A two-time athletic as well as a two-time academic All American, Streiffer completed her college career last fall with 70 goals and 71 assists. Hamm recorded 103 goals and 72 assists at North Carolina.

In her senior season Streiffer was the team’s leading scorer with 19 goals and 15 assists as the Irish won 20 games for the sixth consecutive season and finished 21-4-1. Notre Dame lost in the national championship game.
