"Always Believe"

Kristine Lilly is perhaps soccer's most accomplished player and certainly one of the most successful and decorated female athlete in United States history. At 16 years of age, Kristine made her debut for the U.S. women's national team. Ever since that time, Lilly has graced the world stage with her talents in three Olympic games and five FIFA Women's World Cups, bringing home medals and victories almost every time. In 2000, she made history by becoming the first player to play in 200 career international games in the Nike Women's Cup against Canada. Over her career, Kristine became both the youngest and oldest player to score in U.S. history. She has scored in 16 countries, played in 21 countries, made 130 career goals, and has a total of 352 appearances for the national team. In 2014, she was inducted into the National Soccer Hall of Fame. She is known for her determination, focus, and perseverance. Plan to join Kristine Lilly and the College of Business for a conversation that will focus on Kristine's soccer journey, business, and a mantra to always believe. Flyer (PDF)
