Daly, who has 10 international caps with England’s senior national team, is currently in her third season with the Houston Dash of the National Women’s Soccer League. The Harrogate, England, native currently leads the Dash with four goals and is just one away from tying her career high of five set last year.

Between 2013-15, Daly netted 50 goals for the Red Storm, shattering the program’s career scoring record and leading the Johnnies to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances.
