NOTRE DAME, Indiana — The University of Notre Dame women’s soccer team had three student-athletes named to CoSIDA’s Academic All-District team Thursday afternoon. Junior Eva Hurm was selected to the first team while senior Brooke Littman and graduate student Shannon Hendricks were named to the second team.
Hurm, a psychology major, hails from Upper Saddle River, New Jersey and she has led the Irish forwards with 17 starts this season. Hurm was second on the squad with career-highs in goals (5), points (13) while leading the team in game-winning goals (3). She tallied her second career brace in the 4-0 win over Northwestern with her first goal coming straight from the corner kick. She also scored the only goal in the 1-0 road win over Oakland and the first goal in the 3-0 win over Syracuse.
Littman is majoring in pre-health along with film, television and theatre and has had a breakout year in her senior season with the Irish. She has set career marks in games played (13), minutes (1,230) and shutouts (6) while posting a 7-4-2 record on the year. Littman has allowed one goal or less in eight games this season and the Irish are 6-0-2 in those games.
Hendricks got her undergraduate degree in business analytics and a minor in catholic social traditions back in May and is currently in graduate school. She has been a constant for the Irish on the back line and has started in 71 consecutive games dating back to 2016. This season she has played up in the midfield due to injuries and had the initial shot that led to the game-winning own goal against Wake Forest to lift the Irish to the ACC Tournament.
The CoSIDA Academic All-District teams recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and academically. First-team Academic All-District honorees automatically advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America honorees will be announced in December.
The Irish will await their postseason hopes next week for the NCAA Tournament selection show. The full 64-team field will be announced on Monday November 11 at 4:30 p.m. ET and the show will be aired on NCAA.com.
