Can you say squad goals? At the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, seven former Cardinal athletes got their shots. On the U.S. National Team, Alana Cook, ’19, Naomi Girma, ’22, Sophia Smith, ’22, and Andi Sullivan, ’18, made their World Cup debuts, while Kelley O’Hara, ’10, scored a spot for the fourth time. Ali Riley, ’10, competed on New Zealand’s team for the fifth time, and Kyra Carusa, ’18, made her debut with the Republic of Ireland.

A gem on a different field is Tommy Troy, ’24, who went to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the first round of the MLB draft.

Back at home base, physicist John Sarrao, ’89, will return to campus this October as the sixth director of the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

And particle physics can’t explain how a Cardinal becomes a duck, but John Karl Scholz, PhD ’88, can. He’s the new president of the University of Oregon.
